The City of Tulsa announced it'll expedite highway lighting repairs by the end of this year.

"What used to be copper, we're switching out with aluminum wiring now, which has helped a lot. We've had cuts on it just to verify. We've put stickers on all the repairs and wiring," said Terry Ball, the City of Tulsa's Streets and Stormwater Director.

For the past two years, the city has had a big problem with copper thefts at major highway corridors. This leaves the city with poor lighting, which makes it dangerous for drivers.

However, the city is moving along the repairs that were set to be completed next summer to be finished by December of 2017.
