County Will Brighten Main Street Light Fixtures

A Baltimore County engineer told the Reisterstown Improvement Association that he can help brighten Main Street lampposts.

In its continuing effort to revitalize Main Street, the Reisterstown Improvement Association has taken to the lampposts, which the group feels aren’t bright enough at night.

Baltimore County engineer Greg Carski spoke at Tuesday night’s RIA meeting, and told the group he could switch out the lenses in four or five lampposts of their choice. The lens is the outer layer of the lamppost.

Carski said the county could change out the lampposts in the coming weeks, and he’d see how the RIA likes the new lenses to determine future action.

The Reisterstown Improvement Association appreciates the attention the Baltimore County Traffic Engineering & Transportation Planning Department is giving the Historic Main Street Business District. One lamppost was replaced awhile back after it was knocked down by a truck and another one had the lenses and bulb replaced this morning along Main Street. I spoke with the workers and was shown one of the lenses that was replaced today. You could not see through the lens that was replaced and they cannot be cleaned. At night time the light appears yellow and provides no light on the ground area underneath. Our concern is with people who walk or jog at night time and their safety. We are encouraging more people to visit one of the fine restaurants in our area at night and hopefully more merchants will stay open after 5 or 6 PM. In addition we are trying to attract more businesses to open along Main Street and lighting is very important. Four or Five more lampposts will have their lenses and bulbs replaced in the next week to ten days. Hopefully all of the lampposts will have their lenses and bulbs replaced in the coming weeks and months. Glenn Barnes - President
