Mayor Kenneth Boswell says plans are to place a light system along more than half of the Boll Weevil Circle.
Over the years, authorities say the lack of proper lighting has created dangerous driving conditions.
With several major retailers looking for property along the circle, and plans to build a new high school there.
The city has earmarked more than a $260,000 for the lighting project in the 2008 budget.
"The main reason for the lighting is appearance and safety… when you have new subdivisions and developments the lighting makes them more attractive," said Mayor Boswell.
Besides local monies, the city will apply for grant dollars to help complete the Boll Weevil Circle lighting project.
