Street lights are a critical component of the city's infrastructure and provide vehicular traffic and pedestrians with safer roadway conditions. The Lighting and Signals Division is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the city’s standard and decorative street lights. The city has over 4,600 street lights, which were updated with new LED bulbs in 2015.
For any street light related issues, such as outages or damage, please call 508-532-6008.
When you call, it is helpful to have as much information as possible including:
Type of Issue (i.e. is the light completely out or flickering on and off?)
Contact information (please provide your name and phone number)
The amount of time to repair or replace a streetlight can vary depending on the type of issue. Issues may be prioritized based on the street light outage’s effect on public safety.
