Central Waterfront Transmission Line Relocation Project
Transmission Line Home
Updated: December 27, 2016
Phase 1 was completed in 2013. Phase 2 start date is to be determined.
Large transmission lines that power Seattle are attached to the underside of the vulnerable Alaskan Way Viaduct. Seattle City Light has been working to relocate these transmission lines in advance of viaduct demolition. City Light has completed the first phase of the relocation. Waiting lines for ferry traffic will be temporarily re-routed during the construction.
