AH Streetlights demonstration, Spring 2018 – letter from the County

Upcoming Streetlight Testing and Demonstration in Your Neighborhood

Dear Residents, Your neighborhood has been selected for a streetlight demonstration as part of the County’s Streetlight Management Plan (SMP). The SMP focuses on researching new streetlight technology, investigating ways to enhance the appearance of our streetscapes, updating lighting standards and improving outage reporting. The SMP will also guide County staff on the selection of future streetlight technology, optimization of maintenance, and general service delivery needs. For more information about the SMP, visit: The following streets have been selected: • S Irving St between 7th St S and 9th St S • S Ivy St between 7th St S and 9th St S • 9th St S between S Ivy St and S Quincy St • 6th St S between S Glebe Rd and S Quincy St • 7th St S between S Glebe Rd and S Quincy St • 8th St S between S Glebe Rd and S Quincy St • Columbia Pike between S Oakland St and S Veitch St • George Mason Dr between Lee Hwy and Washington Blvd Attached is a map of the locations (see pdf letter above). Beginning in mid-January, the new LED streetlights will be temporarily installed for approximately two to three months. Residents should expect inconveniences such as: dust, noise, debris, and other temporary construction-related activities. You may also see additional utility marking and excavation as some of the locations may require additional pole installation. We will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience and greatly appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. After the test period, these streetlights and temporary poles will be removed and the original lights will be reinstalled. During this time, a streetlight demonstration for the Streetlight Community Advisory Panel will be hosted by the County to share more about the streetlight technology and different products. This demonstration will be open to the public and we invite you and your community to share any feedback. Our team will provide more information about the demonstration once a date and time is finalized.
