Dearborn Installs New Street Lights on Ford Road

In an effort to add curb appeal as well as light to the area, the City of Dearborn is installing 137 streets lights along Ford Road between Miller Road and Mercury Drive.

The Michigan Department of Transportation agreed to pay to replace the street lights that were removed during the Ford Road street work with standard street lights, but the City stepped in to add funds to allow for more attractive street lights, the city said Monday in a press releases.

The lights to be installed along Ford Road will have decorative polls and luminaries similar to those currently on Michigan Avenue.

The work is scheduled first for the westbound side of Ford Road at Miller and will head in the direction of Mercury. When that side is done, the work will head back on the eastbound side from Mercury.

“By making the area more attractive visually, we continue our constant efforts to keep Dearborn a desirable place to visit, live and do business,” said Dearborn Mayor John B. O’Reilly, Jr.
