1/6/2021 8:35:09 AM | | | At the January 5, 2021 PMAC meeting, DCR staff reported that the lighting replacement and refurbishment is continuing. (1.) As of now, most fixtures have been fixed but 150 light fixtures are still out, and will be refurbished rather than replaced, a slow process. (2.) The next section to be addressed will be at Jackson Square because the COVID testing site there overflows onto the paths at night, and the path is poorly lit. (3.) The issue began when all of the lights failed this summer due to a manufacturing defect. The lights, installed a few years ago, were under warranty, and so replacement parts, and now refurbished lights, are being shipped in batches from the manufacturer. Supply, shipping and COVID-related delays have made this a slow process. (4.) It is a normal part of the process that lights are on during the daytime during this repair phase. (5.) Missing light fixtures are those that have been sent to the manufacturer to be refurbished.
