The Town of Innisfil is installing streetlights on various roads and intersections in 2023 as part of our Streetlight Program. The program includes placing new lights on an annual basis, which are installed based on an established prioritization strategy. This strategy includes an implementation hierarchy to determine which roads require streetlights first. The 5 areas of criteria include:

  1. Pedestrian Volume: Communities with schools and potential for students walking to school rather than taking the bus.
  2. Population: Installing streetlights in communities based on the population of that area.
  3. Housing Density: Streets within the community that have the highest density.
  4. Lighting Network: Building upon the current streetlights to create a cohesive network.
  5. Public Comment: Some communities may not wish to have streetlights installed. This community can be engaged by the Town to voice their concerns and potentially be identified as a dark community.

Disruptions

Public road access and traffic disruptions may occur during construction, but driveway access to private properties will be maintained at all times. Increased noise can be expected between 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. during installation of the streetlights. InnPower may also complete infrastructure upgrades along the streets to support the installation in advance of the streetlights being installed.

Completion dates

The locations listed above are anticipated to have streetlights installed by January 31, 2024. Once the Town’s contractor begins the installation of streetlights on a particular road or intersection, work should be completed at that location within approximately one week.
