Work planned on: High Point Street Light Upgrade

Seattle City Light will be upgrading the electrical grounding system in the High Point neighborhood starting in late March.

Grounding systems are installed on street lighting and other electrical systems to ensure safety for the public and anyone who may come in contact with elements of the system. Contact voltage can occur on the surface of metal streetlight structures, street signs, or other equipment that can conduct electricicty and become energized.

No incidents of contact voltage in the High Point neighborhood have occured. Testing is completed annually to make sure all electrical equipment is safe. City Light is moving forward with equipment upgrades to ensure that all streetlights continue to work properly and safely.

City Light's contractor will be making streetlight system improvements to High Point neighborhood streetlights from late March to June 2013. Residents may see contractors working on streetlight poles and vaults throughout the neighborhood. There is a possibility of power interruptions during the day in order for the contractor to complete their work safely, but residents will be notified at least 48 hours prior to any power outage.

  • Work hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday
