The Raleigh Department of Transportation and Duke Energy completed work on painting streetlight poles and traffic signal mast arms on multiple streets in downtown Raleigh. The teams wrapped up activity on Wednesday, August 15, repainting 134 poles and mast arms. And the difference is amazing!
The poles and mast arms were refurbished with a protective coat of paint, applied either by roll/brush or spray painting, which should last at least 25 years.
Locations included:
N. Salisbury Street (from Edenton to Morgan Streets)
Wilmington Street (from Davie to Edenton Streets)
Blount Street (from Edenton to Davie Streets)
Edenton Street (from Wilmington to Salisbury Streets)
Morgan Street (from Salisbury to Blount Streets)
Hargett Street (from Fayetteville to Person Streets)
Martin Street (from Fayetteville to Person Streets)
Future improvements to the streetlight poles include replacing the damaged decorative pole skirts with new ones.
