Work planned on: H-Frame Replacement

Contracted crews will be removing aggregate rock and transporting planting materials into City Light's electrical transmission line right-of-way near South 109th Street and 47th Avenue. The work is necessary to restore the right-of-way and its associated wetlands. Trucks and other equipment will be accessing the area via South Ryan Way and the gated access at South 109th Street and 47th Avenue South. See the map below for the truck haul route.


Seattle City Light has replaced aging wooden H-Frame structures with new steel monopoles that now support transmission, distribution and communication lines. Crews have constructed new foundations and towers in City Light right-of-way. Crews plan to restore the right-of-way under the power lines and the associated wetlands.

Restoration and Environmental mitigation activities, such as removal of pads and accesses, and wetland improvements have begun and will continue through December 2015. Mitigation establishment, including plant monitoring and maintenance will continue for several years to ensure that improvements are successful.


The project will improve system safety and critical City Light communications, and increase electrical reliability and capacity for customers.


The project corridor extends from City Lights Creston-Nelson substation, located at 5300 South Bangor Street, proceeds west across Beacon Avenue South, Interstate Highway 5, the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroads, and proceeds west to East Marginal Way South. All of this work will be within City Lights Transmission Right-of-Way and/or within City of Seattle or City of Tukwila street Right-of-Way.
