Why does the arterial have street lights but none of them work. I was driving home last night in the rain and you could barely see but the arterial is lined with street lights that are not lit up. All the way from court street to the mall

I saw that the other night.

Either the City hasnt paid their National Grid bill, or someone turned the lights out in Utica already.

Wonder if you can sue if you get in an accident because they arent working? Lemme call Les Lewis and see what he says.

This has been reported on twice. DOT and the city are in dispute over whose job it is to fix them.

WHAT? I would think it was the DOT who should fix them. It is a State Road. The city would pay the electric bill on them I would figure.

Last I read they said the lines/wires are underground and may be corroded and expensive to fix. Yes, they are disputing who's responsible for repairing them.

the lights have been out for over two years. Maybe our Mayor should get some flash lights and sweep that area. Where is that QUALITY of LIFE he is always talking about??????

Here is the situation. It is a state road, however, the dot wants Utica to pay the 100,000 plus to repair them. Utica does pay the electric bill and it is lower as we are not being billed for them. The underground lines are rusted out and the state will not repair them, even though its their property. Don't blame the mayor, blame your governor. Rofereo spent all our money on crap, so if voted for him. Thanks!

Very unsafe on egress/ingress from burrstone rd. Very dark going to Riverside Center. You state is costs at least 100,000 to fix....share the cost with NYS. If someone sued for an accident, you may be paying a lot more.

It is very dangerous. Just what utica needs, another lawsuit. Longo lawsuit will bury utica so why would they care.
Light the city up

These lights have been out for years with more burning out by the day. You can drive down just about every street in the city of Utica and find at least one or more lights out. Check out the area between Schuyler st and the Utica Aud. The lights are all out and no one bothers to fix them. People are walking that area in the dark going to the Comets game and nothing will be done until someone gets hit by a car. Utica is paying over $400,000 for these lights and many of them are out.

So sad to see what has become of Utica. They can't even afford to fix the lights. The last one out of utica won't even have to turn the lights off. There won't be any on anymore. Maybe instead of donating the stupid utica sign. Frank should have donated to fix the street lights. People would be happier. Shameful and sad.

I was leaving Faxton/St. Lukes after dropping off a family member for a treatment. Was headed towards 12N. Very hard to see as it was dark, raining and NO LIGHTS on the ramp. The vehicle in front of me almost turned into oncoming traffic where one takes the new left to get on 12N. Can we demand these lights to get fixed? Can someone please help. I have to bring my family member 3 times a week at 5pm for the next 3 months. Please help.

How about sky lights around Rt 12, Utica Marsh, Riverside area?
They are not rusted out! Utica too cheap to turn them back on. Another very dark area at night.
