7th Street Lighting Modification Project - CC 1425
Project Location: Seventh Street from Pacific Coast Highway to Palm Avenue.
Project Need: This segment of the existing street lighting system is approximately 70 years old and the poles and conduits are severely rusted or corroded in many places. The system operates at 6,000 volts, whereas the current design practice is 120 or 240 volts. The combination of high voltage and the degradation of the system increase the risk in performing maintenance and construction projects in the area. The street lighting circuit is also compromised as a result of age and degradation.
Project Scope: The project will include all new poles, luminaires, conduits, conductors and electrical service equipment.
Schedule: Forecast start - September 2013 - 60 working day duration
Funding Source: Gas Tax Account Fund
