City to demonstrate new streetlights in 7 neighborhoods

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is flipping the switch on new street lights in Chicago.

Seven neighborhoods from across the city have been selected for a demonstration of the Chicago Smart Lighting Project. Each neighborhood will get new lighting on one arterial street, one residential block and one alley.

The mayor will kick off the demonstration Monday afternoon.

Over the next four years, 270,000 outdated lamps will be replaced with modern, energy-efficient LED lights. The city said that the new streetlights will last two to three times longer and will automatically notify the city when one goes out.
