Report a Streetlight Outage
To report a streetlight issue, please complete the Streetlight Trouble Report Form
Examples include streetlight outages, glare or malfunctioning issues (e.g. lights go on/off constantly or on during the day).
Reports can also be made through the "Find It, Fix It" mobile app
, via email at email@example.com
or by calling (206) 684-7056.
Please have the following information for all streetlight trouble reports:
- 7-digit pole number (usually marked with a yellow tag) and streetlight location
- Address nearest to the pole to locate the correct trouble streetlight
- Please specify the issue with the light (e.g. streetlight is out, on all day, on/off, LED glare, pole down, etc.)
- List your name, phone number and/or email for follow-up and status updates
You can also track streetlight repair via our Streetlight Repair Tracker Map
For areas outside of Seattle, City Light may maintain a portion of the streetlights. These areas include Burien, Lake Forest Park, SeaTac, Shoreline, Tukwila, Renton, Normandy Park and portions of unincorporated King County. To assist in identification, please look for the 7-digit pole number tag similar to the image above. If pole does not have this, then maintenance is done by that suburb and not by Seattle City Light. Please contact your city hall to report issues with those streetlights that are not Seattle City Light streetlights.
