The last Mukilteo Silverliner

The last Mukilteo Silverliner


This light is the last of the 400 watt mercury vapor Westinghouse OV-25 fixtures lighting an intersection in Mukilteo, WA. The fixtures are removed as they burn out - this one is still hanging on with its clear lamp.

Oh, mercury vapor! I like MV Streetlights very much!

Now the most Streetlights are HPS!

There were about 820 mercury vapor fixtures still in service in the City of Pittsburgh until 2005 when the city eliminated them.

Figures. Here in LA the mercs on the freeways are gradually disappearing as more series wiring gets replaced by parallel wiring and the merc luminaires get replaced by HPS.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

These were replaced in 2014 with GE 200W/S66, M250R's...now awaiting their LED fate.

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Yes I remember seeing those replacements. Last I was by there they were still HPS. The clear mercury and HPS colors of light were unique. Now street lighting is just warm white or cool white, though a few places still have daylight LEDs from early test installations.

Are you referring to the ones on Olympic Drive?

Yes, those...plus a few at an intersection in Mountlake Terrace and the scattered early Evluma areamax lights that were 6500K....the new ones are 3000K it appears.
