PROJECT UPDATES (9/20/2017):

A City Light contractor will be working in the Magnolia neighborhood to upgrade electronic equipment on a utility pole at West Howe Street. This project was pushed to early October 2017.

Crews will begin this project with a pole replacement and vault installation, which is expected to take up to two days to complete. The cellular antenna and equipment cabinet installation will follow.

For more information, please contact Marcus Hailey (Crown Castle), City Light Project Consultant at (425) 327-1986 or marcus.hailey@crowncastle.com.

In mid-August 2017, Seattle City Light replaced a 41-foot utility pole at 3114 NW 65th Street with a new 59-foot, 6-inch utility wood pole. The replacement pole has three 8-foot cellular panel antennas mounted on top. This project has been completed.
