LOGAN -- Crews in Logan are working to retrofit hundreds of city streetlights with new energy-efficient lamps.
The Herald Journal of Logan reports (http://bit.ly/wgt6js) the 531 lights to be installed replace obsolete fixtures put up during the 1970s and 1980s.
City officials say Logan has more than 3,400 street lights.
Logan Light and Power Technical Operations Manager Chris Niemann says the current lights use an average of 450 watts each. The new ones burn just 150 watts.
The new fixtures are also Dark-Sky compliant and are designed to minimize light pollution. Previously only 12 lights on Logan's Main Street met the requirement.
Niemann says the cost of the streetlight changes runs about $124,000. He say the city acquired a federal grant to help pay for the project.
