Detroit Streetlights Overhaul Map

detroit_street_light_plan

After Charlie Le Duff’s report on the horribly outdated street light infrastructure and the pushpin map to track street lights, this map from the Detroit Free Press  sheds more light on the City’s plan to survey and improve street lights in Detroit. What is most interesting here is the choice to start with the outer neighborhoods where there is higher population density as opposed to improving downtown first. It is likely that downtown has already gotten the investments to improve street lighting, but this is a positive step in prioritizing areas where there is high density of Detroit residents over corporate or commercial interests.
