During the month of August 2023, Public Works is addressing lighting issues in the downtown area and across the island. DPW crew members, working with Kobo, and National Grid are replacing and maintaining our decorative street lights. Some of the work includes running new feed lines, swapping bulbs, and replacing units. 

Thanks for your patience as we enhance our island's historic beauty and safety!

Currently, we are carrying out trench work to replace power feed lines to the streetlights at various locations. This includes:

  • # 40 at 41 Main St., 
  • # 42 at the intersection of Federal Street and Main Street, 
  • # 102 at 13 Broad St., 
  • # 138 at the corner of Easy and Oak Street.

We are in the process of replacing several poles that have suffered damage. The affected poles are:

  • # 52 at the corner of N. Union St. and Cambridge St., 
  • # 57 at the intersection of India Street and N. Union St., 
  • # 530 located in Sconset at the corner of Morey Lane and McKinley Ave.
Streetlights downtown

The Town of Nantucket owns nearly 200 decorative street lamps, which are located throughout the island of Nantucket, primarily in the downtown historic core and in the village of Siasconset. This interactive map was created to assist the public in accurately reporting streetlamp lighting issues via the Streetlamp Reporting Form
