Grateful for Hart Highway lights

It is such a treat to travel the corridor of the Hart Highway north between Monterey Road and the Austin Road intersection these past few months, especially on those long, dark and inky, winter nights when the beam from your headlights is eaten by the gloom and the lane lines are covered with snow and somewhat obliterated by wear and tear.

Now there is a row on either side of the highway of tall, illuminating light standards glowing beautifully bright to light the way. After some 50-plus years of driving the Hart Highway, it is a pleasure to now drive that stretch of highway we call the sandhill and be able to see where you are going.

Many thanks to the workers who excavated the sites, installed the wiring, put up the poles, and installed the lights and all the other workers who were involved in the project. Thanks also to YRB and Westcana Electric who did the planning and the work. And, of course, all of the taxpayers who made this project possible.

We are truly grateful for all your efforts on our behalf.

Now, when can we look forward to the installation of the same illumination lighting our path from the Hart scale north to Monterey?
