Security Measure

New LED streetlights coming to east Lenexa

New LED streetlights coming to east Lenexa
Posted on 04/20/2020
A pair of streetlight improvement projects will bring brighter, more efficient lighting to areas of east Lenexa. 

The City of Lenexa has begun replacing some of the streetlights in Old Town and in the area around Rosehill Road and 103rd Street. See maps of the Old Town project and the Rosehill Road/103rd Street project for impacted streets. 

The City currently leases streetlights on the wood power poles from Every, while the remaining streetlights were purchased from KCP&L (Evergy) in 2009. All of these lights will be replaced with City-owned streetlight poles with energy-efficient LED fixtures.  

Construction will begin with underground work and will end with the installation of streetlight poles and fixtures later this summer.  

The new LED streetlights will reduce operating and maintenance costs due to their lower energy consumption and longer lifespans. They also offer a whiter light which makes objects considerably more visible at night for drivers and pedestrians.  

The Old Town streetlight replacement project received funding through the Community Development Block Grant program, a federal program administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
