Quarter Moon Road, Anderson Street and Wyatt Street will receive new street lights.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) put in a request to start the project and the County Board of Supervisors approved it at the County Board of Supervisors meeting. VDOT, partnered with Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative, will put up a light on the end of a pre-existing pole at the end of Quarter Moon Road. The light will cost $18 per month because of electricity.

 Residents asked for a street light because of issues with loitering and littering. 

The second street light request is a part of the Washington Park Phase Five Community Development Project. 

The street lights in the Washington Park neighborhood improved when the Park received improvements. The street lights will go on Anderson Street and Wyatt Street.

VDOT staff met with Dominion Energy and chose a location for the street lights. 

“Two of them will be on existing poles. They are going to have to install two new poles where we built the new road,” Linwood Pope, Jr. from the County of Greensville Building and Planning Department said. 

The lights will cost $5,685.88.

This money will come out of the CDBG Grant Funds, which has $10,000 to cover the installation of the street lights.
