A few lamp posts have disappeared from Main Street this week. This is one small part of Lodi’s comprehensive plan for downtown–the Lodi Main Street Corridor.
Part of the Corridor plan for Lodi’s Main Street involves some cosmetic changes to the city’s lamp posts. In the course of regular maintenance, and as budget allows, some of the city’s lamp posts are being temporarily removed from service.
The removed posts will be repaired, fitted with new energy-efficient LED lamps, sand-blasted, and repainted black.
During the transition, the lamp posts will be mis-matched–some the 60’s era olive-green you’re used to, and some a more classic black. When the maintenance cycle is complete, all city lamp posts will sport the new black paint and house new energy-efficient lamps.
