Shelby-Hamlin Streetlight Replacement Project

PROJECT UPDATE (6/6/2017)
Seattle City Light received several comments from customers regarding the proposed streetlight replacement project during the month of April. We will inform affected customers regarding any potential changes in design to the project.
Seattle City Light is planning to replace aging streetlights in the Shelby-Hamlin neighborhood with a new, more reliable LED streetlight system. The new lights will provide adequate lighting and use new poles and luminaires that maintain the historic character of the existing fixtures. In April 2017, City Light collected feedback from neighborhood residents on the proposed streetlight project.

- The new LED streetlights will make residential streets safer by increasing their visibility at night.
- LEDs reduce greenhouse gas emissions during manufacturing as well as when they are in use. Additionally, about 20,000 tons of reduced carbon emissions per year are the result of fewer service vehicle trips.
- The project provides an opportunity for community feedback that may affect overall satisfaction of the project's outcome.
- The project will result in an increase in the overall number of streetlights in the Shelby-Hamlin neighborhood.
- Streetlights may be relocated from their existing fixture locations.
- Parking will be restricted during construction work hours.
- Curbside landscaping will be impacted during construction. All affected landscaping will be restored to its original condition.
- Noise is expected from construction and heavy equipment.
