City Street Light Replacement Project Underway

City-Owned-Street Light Replacement Program

A welcoming neighborhood includes a well-lit street that improves pedestrian and vehicle visibility and a sense of personal security. When streets are properly lit, especially at street crossings, it can encourage a walkable neighborhood, improve security, and minimize crime or vandalism. Over the past several years Florida Power and Light has been actively replacing diode fixtures to light emitting diode LED lighting to improve visibility and reduce energy costs, now the City is doing the same with the more than 2,000 City-owned fixtures.

The City’s vendor, NORESCO conducted an audit of fixtures across the City, to determine number of fixtures and their existing conditions, ownership, and fixture type filter. The audit determined that 2,748 fixtures are City-owned and are in need to updating to LED. This work is underway, and while in most cases the pole itself will not change, the fixture will change to accommodate new LED bulbs. Residents will also notice brighter, whiter light directed toward the street, instead of the older amber lighting. 

As of January 23, 2024, the following areas are complete:

  • Driftwood 
  • Emerald Hills/Lakes of Emerald Hills
  • Liberia
  • Hollywood Hills
  • North Central
  • Royal Poinciana
  • Hillcrest
  • Port Everglades

The following areas are scheduled for Q1/Q2 of 2024, pending Florida Department of Transportation permit: 

  • Hollywood Blvd/Bridge/Lakes
  • Pembroke Road
  • Griffin Road
  • City Owned Beach: Pending Fish & Wildlife Permit expected February 2024

The following areas are scheduled for Q2 of 2024, pending Florida Department of Transportation permit: 

  • Sheridan Street
