Crystal Lake residents traveling along Route 14 may have noticed workers removing decorative lighting fixtures on Wednesday.

During a routine inspection of the city's lighting infrastructure, city officials noticed "an issue with the performance of the hardware."

"Due to the severe winter storm that is predicted for Feb. 7, combined with the results of the lighting inspection, the city is taking an abundance of precaution and temporarily removing the street light arms and fixtures," a statement from the city reads.

Crystal Lake staff is working with the manufacturer to ensure that the equipment provided is reliable and safe under various weather conditions.

The street lights will be replaced on the Virginia Street Corridor as soon as possible, the statement reads.

Residents with questions can  have contact the Engineering and Building Department at 815-356-3605 or via email at Engineering@CrystalLake.org.
