Work planned on: 11th Avenue Improvements (South of E. Pike Street)

Seattle City Light plans to begin new construction improvements south of E. Pike Street on 11th Avenue. The project will allow us to ensure safety and dependability for our customers.

Starting July 29, civil construction crews plan to excavate on the south side of E. Pike Street on 11th Avenue, where they will replace overhead wires with an underground cable feed. After the underground feed is installed, the street will be restored.

What You Can Expect:

  • Daily work hours are 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with some weekend work possible.
  • No scheduled power outages during civil construction.
  • Crews will maintain a north and a south travel lane through the work zone on 11th Avenue, south of E. Pike Street.
  • Two uniformed police officers will maintain access to buildings, promote traffic flow, and safety in crosswalks at all times.
  • Approximately ten parking spaces on 11th Avenue south of E. Pike Street will be required for travel lanes and to stage construction equipment. Traffic flow and parking will return to normal during the evenings and weekends.
  • Intermittent saw cutting the street and breaking concrete will occur. Customers should expect construction noise during regular work hours.

At a later date, electrical crews will pull cable to provide service to individual customers. This work will be less intrusive, involving up to two trucks and line workers pulling cable into place. There will be power outages at this time. All affected customers will be notified in advance.

8/12/2013 Update: As of today, civil construction is completed. Overhead work will begin soon.

Schedule: July 29 - August 19
Begin: July 29
Duration: 3 weeks
