Safety
The analysis of reported collisions on Richmond Parkway shows a correlation between adequate lighting and collisions. Restoring circuits can reduce accident rates.

Richmond Parkway (including Garrard Boulevard and Castro Street) is about 5.5 miles long. This important regional link has experienced significant ongoing wire theft problems and is frequently vandalized. Significant Stretches of Richmond Parkway do not have adjacent land use with direct view of the street lights, which may allow the vandals to believe in a low risk of being caught.

The existing pull boxes are plastic and can be easily broken. This project will improve lighting and reduce risk of future theft.
