Downtown Alley Lighting Project

Light up for Safety!

Light up for safetyLast summer, the Downtown Alley Lighting Project added lighting to seven sites in downtown Olympia. This included the installation of new LED lighting fixtures as well as the conversion of some existing lighting fixtures to LED.

This summer, Phase 2 of the Downtown Alley Lighting Project will light up 8 more alleys!

Alleyways were chosen based on criteria including crime trends, level of usage, and lighting installation complexity. Lighting fixtures and installation will be paid for by the City, while monthly electricity costs will be covered by the building owner/tenant.

The Olympia Heritage Commission provided input on acceptable fixture styles.
