Streetlight Problems#

Fort Collins Utilities maintains more than 11,000 streetlights and appreciates your help identifying those not working correctly.

If you see a streetlight that is malfuntioning, tipped over, leaning, or with broken glass or exposed wires, call 970-221-6313. Streetlight outage notices also can be submitted through Access Fort Collins.

Please include the following information:

  • location (e.g., northwest corner, middle of block)
  • nearest address
  • closest intersection

Some lights have an ID number 6-7 feet up the pole, which is useful, if accessible. Your name and phone number are helpful in case we need additional information.

If you are reporting a traffic light issue, please call Traffic Operations at 970-221-6630.
