Ontario's last fluorescent highway lighting?

Ontario's last fluorescent highway lighting?

Click to view full size image

These are probably some of the last fluorescent fixtures in use on public roads in Ontario. The photo is dated April of 1991. This is the 405 bypass from the QEW. Does anyone have any pictures of these in use under municipal control after this?

The small community of Sharon, Ontario had a few remaining fluorescent streetlights over the main road until 2015. Here's my pic of them at night and here's a day picture. I might have more pictures stashed away on my computer from 2009-2010. IIRC the remaining fluorescent lights at the time were still fairly well maintained. The Sharon fluorescent streetlights were the last ones I saw lighting a public road. The few remaining ones now are all privately owned.

I think some of the fluorescents in Toronto that weren't on a expressway (and avoided the LPS changeout in the 70s) stuck around until 1992-1993 with some staying until 2012.

2014 Streetview showing them still in use. They were removed by the time the next Streetview was taken in 2015, replaced with HPS.
