City Light Begins Work to Increase Electrical Reliability Along Harrison Street

Construction Work Areas Along Harrison Street

Starting in early March, Seattle City Light will begin another project in the South Lake Union neighborhood.  Crews will be excavating for new electrical vaults and conduit along a segment of Harrison Street. The project will enhance the electrical reliability for affected customers in the area.

This work will be done in four stages, starting with Stage 1. Crews will be breaking street pavement on Harrison Street between Dexter Avenue North and 8th Avenue North to install the new electrical vault and conduit. During this work, Harrison Street will be closed.

Stage 1 of this project is expected to start during the week of March 7th and extend for approximately two months. Work hours are scheduled from Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and weekends from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

During construction, customers should expect some traffic and parking impacts in the immediate area. Flaggers will also be on site to redirect traffic and pedestrian access.
