Poles are brand new and higher to allow trucks to park. Light heads installed last year on old poles that definitely needed to be replaced – lots and lots of paint on them in 20 years and the internal water piping had calcified.
“This project was on our General Capital projects list for 2017. This project includes; replacing old poles with new taller poles that are powdered coated (no need to paint anymore). It also includes some minor irrigation line improvements and electrical work upgrades to fix some existing problems we were having. The existing poles were also too low (semi trucks) and lights had been hit a couple of times which is why Public Works turned the arms and heads away from the road. The new poles will allow more clearance and better light dispersion towards the road.”
