Shelby-Hamlin Streetlight Replacement Project
Contact: Ian Hernandez - Seattle City Light Project Manager
PROJECT UPDATE (2/9/2018)
An update was sent to neighborhood residents regarding Seattle City Light's LED streetlight replacement project in October 2017. Several residents provided their comments and feedback on the project update.
As a result, the utility has updated their design for replacing the aging streetlights in the neighborhood. The planned start date for construction is now tentative for May 2018. Customers will be notified before construction begins.
Please see the information below for a summary of the design changes.
CHANGES TO THE PROPOSED DESIGN
- Existing streetlights will be replaced with the K56 Cleveland LED fixture and Type 2 lighting distribution. This focuses on roadway lighting. (see images below)
- The project will install a total of 21 new streetlights in the Shelby-Hamlin neighborhood. The current neighborhood configuration has 18 total lights.
- The color temperature of the new LED streetlights has been reduced from 4000K to 3000K.
- This project will also upgrade existing curb ramps to ADA standards.
- This project is now fully designed and will be sent to bid for a construction contractor.
Seattle City Light is planning to replace aging streetlights in the Shelby-Hamlin neighborhood with a new, more reliable LED streetlight system.

- 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 will result in an increase in the overall number of streetlights in the Shelby-Hamlin neighborhood.
- Construction will be phased in several stages to minimize street closures in the neighborhood. Only one side of the street will be closed at a time during construction.
- 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.
Tentative to start in May 2018
