Infrastructure and Paving Upgrade Planned for Nord Alley in Pioneer Square

Seattle City Light plans to replace aging underground conduit along Nord Alley in Pioneer Square in order to increase electrical reliability and capacity. The project is being coordinated with the Alliance for Pioneer Square, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), and CenturyLink and features repaving the alley with brick. The project location can be seen below:











Highlights of the project include:

  • Increased electrical reliability and capacity.
  • Work is planned from early May to early July. No power outages or telecommunications outages are expected. Customers should expect noise from construction equipment related to excavation.
  • Though access to businesses will remain open during construction, access to the alley will be limited.
  • SDOT plans to repave the alley with Pioneer Square Preservation Board-approved brick.
