The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
I've been noticing the signs of construction around the light poles on the south side of Washington Place in West Culver City -- and hoping they wouldn't be removed and replaced with regular, standard light poles. Now I've discovered that on April 8, the Culver City Council awarded a contract to Unique Performance Construction to "replace and upgrade the existing streetlight system along the south side of Washington Place between McLaughlin Avenue and Albright Avenue. The project consists of replacing the conduits, wiring, and fourteen existing non-standard concrete streetlights with new 28-foot-high anti-graffiti ‘marbelite’ streetlight standards. New fixtures with energy efficient 250W Induction lamps will also be installed."
Bummer! I realize that the old "non-standard" poles are old and cracked, but I'll still miss them.
The streetlight poles are tentatively scheduled to be delivered and installed by August 26th.
