The lights are on.

New lights have been strung across 176th Street for four blocks from Highway 10 up to 58A Avenue.

“It’s decorative lighting. We want to make the area brighter,” Orazietti told the Cloverdale Reporter Sept. 18. “The idea is that we create a light canopy.”

Orazietti is hoping the lights will draw more shoppers and customers to area businesses.

The retro, tungsten-style lights are strung across the street at numerous points from lamppost to lamppost—much like Cloverdale had in the 1960s (see Surrey Archives picture)—on 176th Street between Highway 10 and 58A Avenue.

According to Orazietti, the BIA is covering the cost for the lights, but he’s hoping the City can donate the power.

“Over a five-year time period, these lights have 100,000 hours of life.”
