DTE to install temporary street lights along Telegraph Road
DTE plans to install some temporary street lights along Telegraph Road, pending the arrival of permanent replacements for many that have structurally failed.
Residents will notice that the replacement poles – painted standard gray – do not in any way match the decorative, custom street lights that have adorned the road in Taylor for decades. However, replacing those specialized poles has been problematic, especially in the post-pandemic economy.
Permanent poles have been on order for months. Given the failure of many street lights along Telegraph, the Department of Public Services opted for this deal with DTE to bridge the gap and provide the best safety options.
