The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PFT), in cooperation with the Alaska Division of the Federal Highway Administration, is proposing to install new street lighting in the Morning Star, Ford, and Highway Park subdivisions with additional lighting in the city core. The new streetlights are LED’s. Construction is anticipated to start summer 2020.
The City of North Pole and ADOT&PF’s purpose is to improve safety in these subdivisions. The subdivisions have areas of lighting that are not uniformly placed or non-existent. Many lights are unmetered with no service disconnects. The project will replace old luminaires and electroliers with LED streetlights and be compliant with current design standards.
There is a public meeting at the North Pole Public Library on November 6 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
