Most Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What number do I call to report street light outages? 
    We rely heavily on the residents of Jefferson Parish to report outages, particularly those outages in their neighborhood. To report outages, call:
    • The Street Lighting Office at (504) 736-6941. This is answered by office personnel from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, by an answering machine after 4:00 p.m. and on the weekends where you may leave a recorded message.

    • Street Lighting Office Voice Mail line - (504) 731-4477.

  2. How long does it take before the repairs are made?
    Repairs are made by either Jefferson Parish (through our contractor) or by Entergy. Most repairs should be completed within five to seven working days; however, in certain cases such as underground breaks, repair time is longer.

  3. Do I have to pay for these repairs?
    No. All repairs are paid through the Consolidated Roadway District Funds. Your taxpayer dollars at work.
