Construction Update

 Seattle City Light Work near CenturyLink Field Delayed

Seattle City Light plans to replace some of the existing major power lines (feeders) from1st Avenue South with new ones in Occidental Avenue between Railroad Way South and South King Street. The work would prepare the area for the SR 99 Tunnel Project and the eventual removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct along the downtown waterfront. This is an update to our previous fliers on the work.

The project is delayed and is in the planning stages.  We intend to provide customers with 3-4 weeks advance notification before the proposed start date.

Once started, the project includes two phases: civil and electrical.  The work involves trenching and building duct banks and vaults. Pulling and splicing electrical cable will follow. See accompanying map.

There are no planned power outages associated with this project. Seattle City Light will work closely with state and local agencies as well as major sporting events to coordinate detours, and uniformed police officers will direct traffic and promote access there at all times during construction.

Thank you for your patience during this feeder relocation.  For any questions you may have or for more information, contact Mark VanOss, Sr. Public Relations Specialist, at (206) 684-3279 or                                                                                                                                      8/02/2012
