The work began on May 1 to replace the 1450 municipally-owned street lights.  The first phase will be completed by June, and the rest set to be completed by the end of November.

The project costs just under $350,000, part of which will be offset by a $100,000 energy efficiency grant from Eversource.

With the use of LED lights,  the city expects to save $95,000 a year in energy costs.
