Street Light Project

In 2017, Public Works staff, in conjunction with the Public Works Committee, identified areas in the City of Brentwood's rights-of-way to improve existing street lighting conditions. Public Works staff measured ambient light levels, prepared cost estimates, and compiled a draft list of proposed light locations. 

In 2018, the Public Works Department gathered feedback from residents and finalized street light addition locations. Throughout 2019, Ameren conducted field investigations to determine if adequate power source poles were available for connecting the existing power source to the proposed street light locations. In May 2019, Public Works used Ameren's power source pole information for 20 proposed street lights and prepared a Request for Proposals (RFP). This RFP is the first phase for street light improvements.

Public Works will present the bid proposals with a recommendation to the Public Works Committee in June 2019. The committee's recommendation will advance to the Board of Aldermen in mid-June 2019. Public Works will issue another RFP later in summer 2019 based on Ameren's next round of field investigations. 

The goal is to use the selected bidder to install underground conduits, fittings, pull tape and base pipe needed for Ameren's work. Ameren will pull wiring through conduits, make necessary electrical connections, set the new fiberglass street lights onto base locations, and energize/test the electrical/street light system to ensure the street lights work properly.
