Seattle City Light, UW Remind Cyclists of Construction Along Trail

SEATTLE Seattle City Light and the University of Washington remind Bike-to-Work Day cyclists that City Lights work on the Burke-Gilman Trail at the university requires a detour. Trail users are urged to check detour routes on the UW Burke-Gilman Trail Detours website.

Seattle City Light crews will increase electrical capacity and improve reliability to the electrical system serving UW. The project requires trenching to build a new duct bank, installing conduits, vaults and new underground high voltage power lines along the Burke-Gilman Trail.

City Lights work extends along the Burke-Gilman Trail between City Lights University Substation and the UWs West Substation. City Light has five phases of work to complete. During the current first phase, crews will work Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Some weekend work is possible. Noise is expected during construction. The project is an important part of improving service reliability for City Light customers, which is a key part of Seattle City Lights Strategic Plan.
