Starkville Electric crews and their contractor counterparts have stayed visibly downtown since Monday as the department begins installing upgrades to a portion of its downtown presence.

SED System Engineer Jason Horner said the department is working to replace aging wood polls along Lampkin Street from Bell Building Supply to just west of Starkville City Hall. He said the old poles were about 25-30 years old, which is the typical expected lifespan for wood light poles. SED is also using the opportunity to address clearance issues from old poles that were placed too close to buildings.
