A lighting project was completed this week in downtown Winnsboro by a Rayville-based company.
The C7 LED bulbs were installed on roof fronts down Prairie Street to Killian Reality and Old Post Office Museum.
Performing the work were Matt and Michelle Rainwater of Riverside Lighting.
“We’re adding lights to these dark times,” Matt Rainwater said.
The $14,000 project was funded in part by a Louisiana Main Street COVID Recovery grant, Franklin Parish Tourism and donations by local business, said Kay LaFrance, Winnsboro Main Street director.
“This was first done some time ago,” LaFrance said. “The current lighting needed upgrading.”
The lights will be turned on during holidays and on special occasions from dusk till dawn and will also be used to draw attention to downtown Winnsboro.
“The lights that were installed are now energy efficient,” LaFrance said. “The utility costs will be negligible.”
