Tijuana’s streetlight crews have been busy of late.
A city worker replaces a bulb on the pedestrian promenade leading to the tourist district. During the street’s renovation a few years back, many of TJ’s street lamps were replaced with antique-looking street lamps from a bygone era.
Workers replace a cast-iron antique-like street lamp along Coahuila Street in the Zona Norte. With the lamp post still covered in protective plastic wrap, a worker positions the post over the pavement's electrical outlet. The old post was snapped in two when an errant driver plowed into it.
A worker up in a “cherry-picker” installs a sodium-vapor lamp into one of the new lighting fixtures hovering over the recently completed vehicular bridge crossing the Tijuana River.
