I decided to look into it using Google Maps, and from the looks of it, not only are the fixtures long gone, but it looks like they got removed and replaced with HPS streetlights shortly after the field study ended (unless they listed the wrong street in the article). I've been going back and forth trying to find evidence of their existence, but the oldest street view captures (2007) show HPS streetlights, and the newest ones (2013, 2018) show LED.

And before someone asks, the streetlights in the 2007 captures appear to have yellow NEMA tags, hence why I think they're HPS.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

I saw that too, I bet they put LED up during the case study.

The article said the HPS was reinstalled.

Don't worry, I had to read the article a few times before I spotted it! I wish fluorescent streetlights were more successful in the US.
