DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Officials say Dayton is poised to quadruple the number of LED streetlights posted in the western Ohio city over the next four years.

Diane Shannon, deputy director of Dayton’s Office of Management and Budget, says the city is on track to replace the 5,000 streetlights it owns with light-emitting diode fixtures by 2020.

The Dayton Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2jCyJSq ) 426 streetlights have been upgraded to the more energy-efficient light-emitting diode fixtures since the city implemented a property-assessment program in 2014.

The rest of the replacements will coincide with the culmination of that assessment period in four years.

Authorities say the new lights will help make neighborhoods safer as well as save the city money on electric and maintenance costs.
