(KMOV)-- The city of St. Louis is removing the South Kingshighway overpass light fixtures between Manchester Avenue and McRee Avenue.

City streets spokesperson Todd Waeltermann said the city is replacing the 280 current light globes with single lights on every other fixture. There will be 1/4 the number of lights than there had been in the past. Every other fixture will have nothing on it. The city is trying to figure out some sort of ornament for the fixture.

This will cost the city approximately $40,000. The city says the old fixtures are falling apart and this is another way for the city to go green.

 

 

 

 

 

News 4 was told the city is also looking at dimming some street lights along Oakland near the Science Center, because the new I-64 lights are so bright.

What are other ‘green’ or ‘money-saving’ projects the city should be looking at. Post your comments below!! We’ll share the poll and comments results in the News 4 newscasts.
