Notice Regarding the Reduction of Street Light Maintenance in Salt Lake City
Due to Salt Lake City budget reductions, as of July 1, 2010, many street lights illuminating the public right-of-way in Salt Lake City are no longer being maintained. Only city street lights in city parks, in the Central Business District, in Special Improvement Districts, or at intersections will be maintained. Some other street lights will also be maintained under manufacturers’ warranties. Lights not being maintained will function until something occurs, such as a bulb burnout, wiring problem, etc. When that occurs, the affected light(s) will remain out indefinitely until budget is restored. Below is a link to a map of Salt Lake City street Lights. Street lights shown on the map as green dots will be maintained, whereas those shown as red dots will not be maintained.
If you have any questions, please call Mike Barry, SLC Transportation Engineer, at 801-535-7147.
Salt Lake City owns and operates over 14,000 street lights. Street lighting provides not only safety on the public streets but also a feeling of security within residential neighborhoods. Please use the links below to learn more about City policies regarding street light installation and operation.
