Streetlight Pole Painting

Traverse City, MI – Motorists, bikers, and pedestrians should be aware that Traverse City Light & Power’s contractor, National Coatings, Inc., will be painting streetlight poles beginning May 1, 2014. The following areas will be impacted by the painting: along the Boardman River from Cass to the boat launch; Front Street proceeding west from Cass Street to Division Street; Union Street from the Grandview Parkway to the Post Office; and Cass Street from State Street to the Boardman River. Every effort will be made to keep the impact on the affected areas at a minimum; however some parking spots will be used to facilitate the work around the streetlight poles throughout the course of the project.

The project is expected to be complete by November 14, 2014.

Unfortunately, this work will create a minimal level of noise and cause some inconvenience. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. Please contact Tom Olney, Operations Manager, at 231-932-4550 if you have any questions or concerns about the work or schedule.
