Streetlight-featured

Windsor-Square-SpecialOver the last couple of weeks, the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Street Lighting (BSL) has been freshening up the historic metal street lights – known as ‘Windsor Square Specials’ – in the Windsor Square area of the neighborhood.

At the request of CD4 Councilmember Tom LaBonge, the BSL has painted the street light poles along Plymouth Boulevard, Windsor Boulevard, Lorraine & Irving Boulevard between Wilshire Boulevard & 3rd Street. In addition, they painted street lights along Norton Avenue between 3rd Street and Beverly Boulevard; and along Van Ness Avenue between 1st Street & Beverly Boulevard.

The paint color is known as “Spring Street Green” and the City applies a fresh coat every 10-20 years, depending upon need.

The street light pole painting program is done city wide & the BSL receives requests from the neighborhoods, council district offices and other agencies.
