Work planned on: Utah Avenue South

Seattle City Light will be working to increase electrical service reliability in the SODO neighborhood with an electrical system upgrade along Utah Avenue South between South Lander and South Horton Streets. The project involves replacing poles, overhead electrical wire and upgrading equipment. (see map).

Newly installed electrical wire and equipment will improve system reliability and add capacity to the SODO area.


  • Crews will be replacing poles, overhead electrical wire and equipment to increase electrical reliability
  • Several planned outages will be required for crews to do the work safely. The typical outage length is two to three hours. Customers will be notified one to two weeks in advance of a planned power outage.
  • Not all customers within the work zone shown on the back of this flyer will be affected by the power outages. City Light will contact customers to confirm planned outages.
  • Parking impacts are expected. No Parking signs will be enforced but kept to a minimum. Crews will remove them as soon as the work is finished.
  • Customers and businesses should expect noise during construction.
  • Pole installation will start from South Lander Street in approximately the second week of February. Crews will proceed to the south. Overhead line work will follow. At a later date crews will return to work on side streets.
Schedule: Mon-Fri from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
