Work planned on: H-Frame Replacement

Project Overview:

City Light is replacing eight outdated H-Frame structures and cables that transmit electricity on high voltage lines across I-5 due to their age as well as increasing electricity demand. The project will improve system safety and increase electrical reliability for customers.

City Light crews will build duct banks across South Bangor Street in the summer and fall of 2014. Pole installation has begun and will continue through September. Conductor (wire) installation will be done as soon as the poles are installed. Restoration and Environmental mitigation activities, such as plant surveys, will begin in 2015 and continue for several years.

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.

Schedule: Summer 2014 - Fall 2014
Begin: Project started Summer 2012
