LED Streetlight Retrofit Project Underway 
The City’s project to replace all streetlights with LED technology is underway, with crews currently focused on neighborhoods located off Asheville Highway. 

In hilly, wooded landscapes like Holston Hills, street lights are camouflaged during the day. But by night, the absence of light due to a broken bulb or a weak beam is obvious and can present hazardous driving and walking conditions.

Installer Justin replaces a high-pressure sodium bulb with an LED fixture on Inglewood Drive before joining the rest of the team of installers on Sunset Drive. The roads are narrow, and the trucks are large, so drivers appreciate residents’ patience as they work. Signs, pylons and flaggers will be on site at all installation locations to alert drivers as to the presence of workers.

Installation teams have been retrofitting approximately 30 fixtures a day, but will do up to 150 lights per day as activity ramps up in coming weeks. 

You can follow along as crews retrofit the nearly 30,000 streetlights within city limits. This map shows the city divided into zones.
