The Lighting District is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Charlotte County’s traveling public thru effective maintenance of traffic signals and other vehicular and pedestrian traffic control devices on County’s roadway network. Through an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and City of Punta Gorda, the division maintains all traffic signals for these entities.

Currently, the District maintains approximately 112 signalized intersections, 52 incident management cameras, 16 complete microwave detection systems, 60 complete video vehicle detection systems and 75 miles of buried fiber optic communications infrastructure.

The Lighting District has a “locates” team to protect the underground traffic, roadway lighting, power, signal and fiber optic cables. The District is a member of the Sunshine State One Call (811) system of Florida which is regulated by the Florida State Statute 556. A contractor or citizen can create a ticket by calling the 811 number or going to their website www.callsunshine.com. Please remember to call in a ticket with the 811 system before any excavation is performed.
