- The project will replace aging electrical infrastructure and upgrade the existing electrical system.
- The electrical upgrades will reduce unplanned power outages.
Crews will begin replacing utility poles, overhead wire and equipment in the following areas:
- 10th Avenue South between South Weller Street and South Jackson Street
- South King Street between 10th Avenue South and 18th Avenue South
- Maintenance power outages are required to do the work safely. Notification will be provided in advance of outages. The notification will specify the date, time and duration of the outage.
- Crews will reduce traffic and parking impacts by working one area at a time. However, traffic will be restricted and "No Park" signs enforced in work zones. "No Park" signs will be removed once work has been completed.
- The new poles will be placed alongside pre-existing poles. Pre-existing poles will be removed once the transfer of all utilities is done by other companies. Seattle City Light will monitor these efforts to facilitate the removal of old poles.
