The temporary steel poles and wiring have been completed prior to the beginning of SDOT’s Fairview Bridge Replacement Project. Once the existing bridge has been replaced, City Light intends to remove the temporary steel poles and overhead conductor wiring. This final phase is tentatively scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2020.
Seattle City Light plans to install a temporary second set of power lines along Fairview Avenue North. Crews will temporarily install two new 100-foot steel poles; including their corresponding foundations and power lines to the west of the permanent poles and lines and de-energize the permanent lines. Once the bridge replacement project is complete, City Light crews will remove the temporary poles and foundations and re-energize the permanent lines. SDOT plans to start the bridge replacement project in winter 2017/2018. See the Fairview Avenue North Bridge Replacement Power Lines Relocation Project map for Seattle City Light's work.
The work is necessary to assure safe electrical clearance distances and system reliability during the Seattle Department of Transportation's (SDOT) project to replace the aging Fairview Avenue North Bridge.
