Streetlight LED Conversion (City Owned Lights)
February 6, 2019: Approximately a third of the city’s lights have been replaced. This project will continue through spring of 2019.
November 21, 2018: Beginning the first week of December the contractor will start replacing existing fixtures with LED fixtures on the roadways in the Research Park area (the northeast section of Kettering). They will continue throughout the city. Expected completion will be the Spring of 2019.
October 24, 2018: This project is expected to be completed later this year.
This project was awarded in November 2017.
Project Description: This project includes the replacement of approximately 1,000 City-owned street light fixtures from high pressure sodium lights to LED lights. The work will primarily take place on several of the City’s major thoroughfares, including Stroop Road, Shroyer Road, Research Blvd, County Line Road, and Lincoln Park Blvd, among others. Miami Valley Lighting, who owns the majority of street lights in Kettering, primarily in residential neighborhoods, has already completed an upgrade to LED technology within the past several years. Once the City-owned street light conversion project is complete later this year, nearly all of the street lights in Kettering will be LED.
Project Limits: Approximately 1,000 city-owned street lights on thoroughfares throughout the city.
Contractor: Capital Electric Line Builders
