As part of the City’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce costs, and improve roadway visibility through the Vision Zero 2020 program, the Fremont City Council in May approved a contract to upgrade all streetlights to LED technology. Replacement of over 14,000 streetlights is under way with completion anticipated by the end of the year.
The project kicked off on October 6 along Fremont Boulevard between Peralta and Washington boulevards. This section is anticipated to be completed in approximately two weeks.
On Monday, October 10, installation of new LED streetlights begins in Fremont neighborhoods. Crews will be upgrading streetlights in the following neighborhoods: Lakes and Birds, Ardenwood, and Northgate. The LED streetlight upgrade project will continue throughout all Fremont neighborhoods throughout the year.
