City Light to Upgrade Electronic Equipment on Utility Poles in Green Lake

Map of the Construction Work Area

Starting in late June 2016, Seattle City Light will be supporting enhanced cellular and data services in the Green Lake area by upgrading electronic equipment to five utility poles throughout the public right-of-way of the neighborhood.

This project is an expansion of existing communications networks and 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 will begin during the week of June 22, 2016 and last approximately six weeks. Daily work hours are from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
