Work planned on: West Seattle Overhead Lines Upgrade

A portion of West Seattle currently runs on a 4 kilovolt electrical distribution system. This system is aging and becoming outdated. Seattle City Light will be upgrading the neighborhood's electrical infrastructure to a 26 kilovolt system, which will be more reliable and provide more capacity to meet increasing demand for electricity.

The project entails replacing poles, cross arms, insulators, transformers, and electrical wires. Some power outages will be necessary. Affected residents will be notified of planned outages in advance.

6/12/2014 Update: We are currently working along California Avenue SW between Hudson Street and Findlay Street. Affected customers were sent a notification letter on June 9, 2014. See map here.

Schedule: ongoing through 2018
Duration: five years
