Some Trenton Streets to Go Dark During Street Light Improvements

Electricity to residences and businesses will not be affected as crews make street light improvements in Trenton.

Some Trenton streets are expected to go dark as crews begin improvements to street lights.

Residences and businesses are not expected to be affected by the improvements. Only street lights are expected to be affected.

DTE Energy is upgrading older street lights to improve the reliability and energy-efficiency of street lighting through several neighborhoods in Trenton, according to the City of Trenton website.

DTE will be shutting off power to impacted street lighting circuits for the next 30 to 40 days in an effort to keep crews safe.

Electricity will be restored to the affected areas as quickly as possible.

Residents and businesses in the construction zones will be notified by door hangers left on the premises and signs will be posted on street lights scheduled to be upgraded. Road signs will also be posted in neighborhoods.

There is a map in the photo section of this article detailing the affected neighborhoods in red.

The work is part of a $4 million effort in 2013 to improve DTE Energy's street lighting service, according to the DTE Energy website

The new street lights are expected to be more energy efficient; saving the City of Trenton money on its energy bill.  The lights also are expected to be more reliable and enhance safety in the community.

Contact the Trenton Engineering Department 734-675-8251 with questions on the street light upgrade.
