The city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the purchase of decorative LED streetlight fixtures and poles. The new LED fixtures will replace existing concrete poles and streetlights located on 56th Street. The installation of the new fixtures is being done in conjunction with a municipal road resurfacing project. The city will purchase and install a total of twenty nine LED streetlights for this project.
The current installation is part of the city’s ongoing effort to replace existing streetlights with a more modern and energy efficient product. In 2010 the city of Kenosha completed an installation of 750 LED streetlights in the downtown area. The LED streetlight, manufactured by Amerlux Exterior, was a retrofit kit, which enabled the city to use existing fixtures and poles. The project was funded by a grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
For the current proposed project, city engineers selected the Holophane Washington Postlite acorn-style LED fixture which will be mounted on a cast aluminum pole.
Complete bids must be submitted to the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, by Thursday, July 25, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. Any questions about the proposed LED streetlight fixture may be submitted to Mr. James Schultz, Civil Engineer, at 262-653-4148. The bid document can be found here.
