City Light Plans Repairs on Damaged Conduit in Capitol Hill

Starting in mid-November 2016, Seattle City Light plans to repair a segment of underground electrical conduit at the corner of 10th Avenue and East Union Street in Capitol Hill.  The conduit at this location is damaged and repairs are needed to maintain electrical reliability.

Crews will be breaking sidewalk pavement at the corner of 10th Avenue and East Union Street. Traffic will be limited to one lane on 10th Avenue during construction. Flaggers will be present at all times to assist traffic and pedestrian access.

Customers can expect temporary parking restrictions as trucks will be staged on site during work hours. Excavated areas will be covered over with steel plates during non-work hours.

Construction will begin on Monday, November 14, 2016 and last approximately one week. Daily work hours are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
