New LED lights being installed on the streets of Jacksonville

The city of Jacksonville and JEA are working to change the way you see at night when driving through the city.

We’re in year one of a three year project to replace older lights with new LED lights.

The new lights are paid for by the city and maintained by JEA. The old lights look yellow, while the new LED lights look white.

Action News Jax is told the new lights are more efficient, something that has benefits for customers.

“These lights last longer, they probably have about a 20-year life span and so we won’t have to roll trucks, and that will save our customers money, to replace to just bulbs,” said JEA spokesperson Gerri Boyce.

JEA has finished the light replacement on Beach Boulevard. Kernan and Hodges boulevards are next and should be complete in the next few months. We have reached out to the city to find out how much this project costs.
