Crews have resumed work and are approximately 10% complete.
Seattle City Light crews plan to enhance electrical reliability for customers in an area southeast of South Lake Union. The new underground electrical facilities are designed to connect customers with the Denny Substation network system. The project is scheduled to begin in mid-January 2018.
City Light crews will install three (total) new electrical vaults and a new duct bank system for underground conduit. See the map below for Phase 1.
At a future date, this project will include similar work in these additional phases: a street crossing at Minor Avenue North and Valley Street; work along the length of Roy Street between Fairview Avenue North and Minor Avenue North; and work on Minor Avenue North, for approximately 40 feet, to the north of its intersection with Valley Street. The sequence of these additional phases will need coordination, so will be communicated at a future date.
CONSTRUCTION WORK AREA
The project will increase electrical reliability since the area will have power from the network system.
PROJECT SEQUENCE AND IMPACTS
During Phase 1, the crews will install the first vault on the northeast end of Minor Avenue North between Valley and Roy streets. They then will work south to the intersection of Minor Avenue North and Roy Street for the installation of a second vault. See map.
