The Public Lighting Authority of Detroit (PLA) will begin construction and installation of new street lights in the two pilot areas, the first steps of the PLA’s efforts to relight Detroit this Friday. PLA Executive Director Odis Jones will give details about the new design, construction and installation in the pilot areas, as well as discuss the progress, and next steps of the PLA’s three-year plan to relight the entire City.

Installation of lights will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, November 8, at the intersection of Brock and Collingham, just east of Gratiot, a couple of blocks south of Eight Mile.  An engineering survey of the two pilot areas that was recently completed showed that nearly half the lights in both areas are not working.
