[Summit] street lights

They're in the process of replacing all the old street lights with new LEDs across the city. My street was done two days ago. You'll see the cherry picker trucks around town (the one on our street was marked Siemens). The new light is a flat white rather than the dull yellow we're all used to. The brightness factor didn't catch my attention, but I'm not a huge fan of the color. However, reportedly the savings (both energy and cost) will be significant.
