FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and the Finance and Administration Cabinet will replace 1000’s of roadway lights throughout the state with energy-saving LED lights.
The initiative was introduced as we speak and the upgrades will scale back the power consumption of roadway lighting programs by more than fifty % and save more than $2.8 million a 12 months in lowered utility and upkeep prices.
KTC can even be changing round 1,500 lights in garages and parking heaps and can replace roadside controller packing containers and cupboards and the relocation of crash-prone poles.
Work started in November and is anticipated to be full by early 2022.
