UPDATE 11/23/2021: The contractor has completed Phase 1 of the attached map and is now working in Phase 2. We are hopeful that all three phases will be completed by the end of 2021.
The city has developed a two year streetlight maintenance approach for 2021 and 2022 to repaint the streetlight poles in the residential neighborhoods. Roeland Park has partnered with INSCO Industries to begin the first of three phases for the repainting process of 169 streetlight poles that are located on the westside of Roe Blvd and will be completed by the end of 2021. The remaining 189 streetlight poles on the eastside of Roe Blvd will be completed in 2022.
The current poles are a silver color that will be changed to a gloss black to match the new streetlight poles that were installed along Roe Blvd. The process starts with prepping the pole surface to remove any dirt or rust to ensure the paint products adhere to the pole. A primer coat will be applied to the pole as well as the finish coat.
The contractor will begin on Monday, October 25, 2021. Work hours will be from 7am-3:30pm, Monday-Friday. The contractor will start in the northwest corner of Phase One of the map and continue to move into additional phases as each phase is completed. The city kindly requests that cars do not park in front of streetlights if possible during daytime hours to allow the contractor plenty of room to complete the painting of each pole. If you have any questions regarding this work, please contact Donnie Scharff at 913-722-5435 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
