SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS

One of the goals of Denver's Vision Zero Action Plan is to enhance street lighting along the High Injury Network to improve visibility.


Street Light Conversions

Beginning in 2019, Denver Public Works and Xcel Energy are converting 44,000 existing street lights to use LED bulbs. The new equipment will have better quality of light and significant energy savings.

Work began in Spring 2019 with the first conversions on Colfax Avenue and Federal Boulevard, two streets on the High Injury Network.  

DECEMBER 2019 UPDATE

  • 30,500 LEDs installed
