THUNDER BAY – On Monday some of the cones that were marking spots where streetlights once stood were replaced with new streetlights. The streetlights had first come down on May 1st after a streetlight fell over at the corner of Brodie Street and Victoria Avenue.

City crews were on the job on Tuesday installing new replacement street lights.

The move helps in the downtown Fort William business district to improve lighting at night.

After the streetlight fell down on April 30th, Thunder Bay city crews worked on inspecting light stands across the downtown area. Several streetlights were then removed, rusted bases made them unsafe and additionally at risk for falling over.

The issue was raised in an article on NetNewsLedger in November.
