PROJECT UPDATE (3/08/2018):

Seattle City Light's civil construction is complete through all phases of the improvements in Hillcrest. The responsibility for restoration of phase 3 now lies with the the Seattle Department of Transportation.


Seattle City Light plans to maintain electrical reliability in the Hillcrest Development by rebuilding parts of the underground system. The overall refurbishing of the system was begun in 2013. City Light must now return to complete this phase of the project. 

The work involves trenching for the installation of the conduit and vaults. The project is the next step to ultimately replacing the existing cables.  

A map showing the three work areas and their sequence is below.


  • Planned outages may be required. If required, customers will be notified in advance.
  • Trenching will occur in the public right-of-way. Affected landscaping, sod, driveway aprons, and sidewalks will be restored to City standards.
  • Parking restrictions are necessary to work safely/efficiently. Trenches will be plated at night.
  • Once conduit and vault installation are complete, the electrical cable will be pulled into place.



The project will proceed in the planned ordered shown above with the SW Bradford Street section starting first.
