Street lights replaced along I-40 in Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)

The city of Albuquerque has replaced old street lights along I-40 with new, brighter lights.

Over the past year the city and lighting company Citelum have worked to engineer a custom “lighting master plan” for Albuquerque.

It includes converting more than 20,000 lights to LED bulbs.

Right now the city is halfway done with the interstate.

The city says when the project is complete, it will save millions of dollars in electric costs.
