Work planned on: West Capitol Hill Service Requests


Crews are continuing previous service connection work in two locations:

  • New switching equipment is being added at the condo/retail development at 301 East Pine Street. Crews will be accessing the vault, located in the 301 East Pine building, via the east side of Melrose Street, south of its intersection with East Pine Street.
  • Work will also begin later in the month in a vault at 10th Avenue, between East Pike Street and East Union Street for the 1427 11th Avenue building. This work will provide new service to the condominiums and retail space being built there.
Thank you for your patience.


City Light has twenty-five service connection projects happening in the Capitol Hill area. We want the surrounding community to know about them and we want to listen to any concerns.

The projects include new service connection requests inside and outside an area designated for undergrounding. A service connection is a request for electricity at a new development. There are other utilities working in the same area. So the area is very active.

City Light is working efficiently. Service connection work is, where possible, being coupled with undergrounding to reduce the disruption to parking and business. We relate to developers and other utilities in planning our work.

Unfortunately, we are not able to give a lot of specifics on impacts and timeline for each project. This is due to juggling customer interests, construction timelines, and crew availability.

What we do know is this:

  • Notice for any maintenance outages will be given in advance.
  • Well communicate project details as they are known either through a letter, flyer, or face-to-face.
  • A City Light representative, Roy Carbonell, will be a personal point of contact for the projects. See contact information above.
  • Additional contact information includes: Wayne Gallup, Seattle Department of Transportation Street Use, at 206-681-6099, or and James Kelly, Office of Economic Development Business Liaison, at 206-684-8612 or or visit:
