Downtown Street Lighting project information from Fiscal Year 2020 Budget
(Project No. 07309)
Construction Start Date: Spring 2017
Estimated Completion Date: Summer 2020
Project Manager: Bud Siegel 703-771-2743
Project Description: Replace existing cobra-style streetlights with new historically appropriate fixtures on pedestal poles. As part of the project, provide conduit for future undergrounding of existing overhead utilities.
Existing streetlight poles are rusted, 50 years old and need to be replaced. The project area is on King Street (North Street to south of Loudoun Street); Market Street and Loudoun Street (from Liberty Street to the east end triangle); and Wirt Street (Market Street to Loudoun Street). The project requires that a design be compatible with the historic district and requires Board of Architectural Review approval. Initial project funding of $750,000 (80% grant/20% local) is through three separate SAFETEA-LU Transportation Enhancement Funding awards from VDOT. The Town will continue to apply for additional Enhancement Funding in subsequent years. The construction of the project will be phased to coincide with the funding available through grants, and will be coordinated with the downtown improvement project.
