The streets of Niles will soon shine a little brighter.

The city has started replacing about 250 street lights with LED lighting. The replacement is expected to be completed by October.

The replacement will include lights on the following streets: Shadow Ridge Drive, Tripodi Circle, Wood, Fulton, Gilbert, Ambrose, James, Stepney, McDonald, Poplar, Cardigan, Timber Court, Iowa, Dakota, Wyoming, Old Forge, Bowman, Fredrick, Lakeview, and Main St.

The project will cost about $70,000 of local dollars. City officials say this is apart of their continued effort to upgrade the city's aged infrastructure.
