New street lights to be installed on 2nd Street in Henderson

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

New antique looking street lights are coming to 2nd Street in Downtown Henderson. 

A total of 37 new lights will be installed between Green Street and the railroad overpass. 

The project is designed to create a more aesthetic gateway into downtown, in hopes of attracting more people and businesses. 

We spoke with the owner of Petals and More, on 2nd Street, who thinks it's a great idea.

“The design of the lights I think is fitting for the city, and to add a little more charm and character, you know, as you drive along 2nd Street,” said Mary Sue Barron.  “We've got lights on the building that we leave on at night, but I think the addition of the street lights, will add a little more security for us.”

The new street lights will be LED. 

The bid for installation must be approved by the city commission.
