Electronic Equipment Upgrades Planned for Utility Poles in Queen Anne

Seattle City Light will be supporting enhanced cellular and data services in the Queen Anne area by upgrading electronic equipment to two utility poles throughout the public right-of-way of the neighborhood.

Electronic equipment upgrades are planned for two utility poles in Queen Anne. This work will last one week.

This project is an expansion of existing communications networks. The equipment modifications will increase public safety and enhanced-911 capabilities. The work will also improve wireless services to areas, allowing for enhanced connectivity and faster 4G service.

During this project, City Light crews will also have the opportunity to upgrade its infrastructure and replace utility poles that are in poor condition.

There are no maintenance power outages planned for this work. Some traffic and parking impacts are expected in the immediate work areas. Crews will be careful to maintain access to driveways.

This project is anticipated to start sometime between late November and early December 2016. This work will last approximately one week. Daily work hours are from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
