Parks Closed Due to Light Pole Concerns

Utah Park, in Fairlington, and the upper fields at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center, in Arlington Heights, will be closed for at least a three weeks due to problems found with the light poles at each.

“During a regular inspection, it was found that the light poles… need to be replaced to maintain a safe environment for our community,” said Arlington County Parks and Recreation spokeswoman Susan Kalish. “Our goal is to start as soon as weather provides a couple weeks of no rain and 50-degree weather.”

The work will take two to four weeks depending on the weather, Kalish said.

“The goal is to have the fields available in time for the sports season beginning April 15,” she said.
