Phoenix Replacing All Street Lights with LEDs

For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May. 


CITY OF PHOENIX — The city of Phoenix Street Transportation Department announced work on the initial phase for the LED street light conversion project begins August 14.

The initial phase will be conducted throughout downtown Phoenix, the Garfield Neighborhood and Bethany Home Road between Central and 15th avenues. A map with the locations included in the initial work phase is available on the city’s LED program webpage at phoenix.gov/LED.

The initial work phase will allow the city’s contractor, Ameresco, to refine its operations process and develop the schedule for the full citywide LED street light conversion effort.

The overall effort for this citywide project entails replacing approximately 100,000 existing street light fixtures located on public roadways with energy efficient fixtures that feature a 2,700 kelvin LED, the city’s new kelvin standard for street lights. With the substantial savings in energy and reduced maintenance costs associated with LED, the city expects to achieve a total net savings of approximately $22 million through 2030.

Information about the schedule for the citywide conversion will be announced later this fall and corresponding work zone maps and schedules will be made available on the city’s LED program webpage at phoenix.gov/LED.

The installation activity during the initial phase will take approximately six weeks to complete. Work on residential streets will be performed weekdays during daytime hours and work on major streets will be performed overnight. Multiple crews are anticipated to ensure this project is completed in the most efficient manner. A single fixture replacement will take an average of 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Work will be performed in a moving operation and will not require road closures. While crews are working, the sidewalk and curbside parking spaces located adjacent to the work site will be temporarily restricted. Fixture replacement work will not affect utility power to adjacent properties. As part of this project, existing street light poles, bases and underground cabling will remain intact.
