The city of Portland plans to spend more than $370,000 to install 54 decorative
The city of Portland plans to spend more than $370,000 to install 54 decorative sidewalk and street lights along Congress Street between Longfellow Square and City Hall. The new lights, which will provide better lighting for pedestrians, will replace the lights installed in 1980 that light only the street. The move is part of the effort to revitalize the once-thriving retail corridor, which is now being referred to as the arts district because it is home to cultural institutions like the State Theater, the Children's Museum of Maine, the Portland Museum of Art and the Portland Performing Arts Center.
