North Pole Facts
- There are 41 “North Poles” that serve as public art and that light up the Broad Street median from Hamilton Street to Glenwood Avenue.
- In the same year, the North Poles were awarded Project of the Year by Mid-Atlantic chapter of the Construction Management Association of America.
- Each pole has 5 sets of the LED, totaling 20 lights per pole, and 800 lights in total for the project
- As a result, the North Poles can produce any color imaginable and the animation programs include fading from one color into the next, as well as blinking/flashing. In addition, the North Poles are capable of using programs that use up to 10 colors in a given sequence.
