Starting in late December 2016, Seattle City Light will be supporting enhanced cellular and data services in the Fremont and Wallingford areas by upgrading electronic equipment to 11 utility poles throughout the public right-of-way of these neighborhoods.

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 in late December 2016. This work will last approximately four to five weeks. Daily work hours are from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
