Accelerated LED Street Light Conversion

Document Preparation Stage

The accelerated placement of the LED Street Light Conversion will provide the City with additional greenhouse gas reductions. This project will also result in savings from reductions in power and maintenance costs. A Request for Information will allow the City to validate the potential for an Energy Service Company financing option.

Woodcroft Adaptive Lighting Dimming Project

The City is conducting an adaptive lighting dimming pilot project in the Woodcroft community. Approximately five roads will be dimmed during off-peak hours. Off-peak hours include hours with low pedestrian and vehicular activity. The intention of adaptive lighting is to reduce power consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

About the Program

The City of Edmonton is committed to Building Great Neighbourhoods – the building blocks of a great city. Building Great Neighbourhoods is the framework that coordinates neighbourhood investments and construction activities undertaken by the City to renew and improve the livability of Edmonton's neighbourhoods and the lives of the people who live, work and visit the city. This includes the following programs:

Project Lifecycle Build

The Neighbourhood Renewal Program outlines a cost effective, long-term plan to address the needs of Edmonton's neighbourhood roads. The program involves the renewal and rebuilding of roads, sidewalks and streetlights in existing neighbourhoods and collector roadways.

Neighbourhood Reconstruction is a form of neighbourhood renewal that involves complete reconstruction of transportation infrastructure within a neighbourhood.

Construction includes:

  • Roadway reconstruction
  • Street lighting upgrades
  • Sidewalk, curb and gutter reconstruction

Note: Alley renewal is not part of this project.

The Great Neighbourhoods Improvement Fund provides complimentary capital investments that are not covered under the neighbourhood drainage and transportation renewal investments. This is an opportunity to coordinate Great Neighbourhood work with neighbourhood reconstruction to maximize investment and increase the livability of a neighbourhood. As every neighbourhood is different, the investments made are unique to each neighbourhood.

In 2010, the Drainage Neighbourhood Renewal phase of the reconstruction was completed and included the renewal and replacement of sanitary and storm sewers.
