Lincoln Transportation and Utilities Releases Street Lighting Project Progress Report


LINCOLN, Nebraska – Lincoln’s Director of Transportation and Utilities, Liz Elliott, provided an update on a project that began last October to replace 1,000 faulty LED street lights. The street lights are being replaced due to a manufacturing defect that causes them to change color from white to purple.

“Our crews have been hard at work in winter weather to replace faulty headlights,” Elliott said. “We are proud of their work in replacing 624 lamps in just 90 days under difficult conditions, and this work will continue over the next several months.”

In October 2022, the city announced that about 1,500 of the more than 26,000 LED lights installed in the LED street light conversion project completed in 2019 had changed from white to purple. At that time, 40% of defective lamps had been replaced. Replacement costs are covered by the manufacturer.

There are a total of 32,423 LED street lights installed in Lincoln.
