Light Pole Swap Along Allen Street
The on-again-off-again capital works project for rehabilitating the battered Allen Street Mall is still a few furlongs from the finish line. Nothing too surprising. Work first began on the medians south of Broome Street over one year ago to date. Progress here is ultimately measured in the smallest of increments – the unveiling of pathway pavers or one-way bike lanes, or most recently, the new crop of light poles.
The current phase of development is underway with the recent addition of upgraded traffic fixtures along both sides of the Allen/Pike corridor (south of Broome). For the moment, the old street lights remain side-by-side with their more technologically advanced replacements.
Meanwhile, there are a few holdouts situated in the revamped prototype median between Broome and Delancey are the sole survivors of the old school decorative guard.
Take note, as something similar will be arriving on Essex Street in due course…
