The Yale/Yalecrest Street Lamp Restoration Project

The Street Lamp restoration of the original fixture where Yale and Yalecrest split (at about 1600 E. Yale) @ the ‘triangle park’ is complete! This project was unanimously supported by KEEP’s board and enthusiastically supported by the Street Lighting Program Manager of Salt Lake City. With expertise help from Zach at Cottonwood Security and Don Hartley from the State Office of Historic Preservation the restoration really is magnificent. This is the only street light and basket/cage that we know of that actually contains ‘names’ of the streets it illuminates in Salt Lake City. It is truly one of a kind and we are happy to have restored and reinstalled it in our national historic district neighborhood.
