As some of you may know, one of the newly installed streetlight poles on Queen Street East, East of the train tracks, was damaged. The damage to the pole and it’s hardware was as a result of a vehicle hit. Both our Contractor and the Region are aware of this accident and working to replace the pole and all related hardware. Until such time, both roadway and pedestrian luminaires will be off.
