In late October 2017, a Seattle City Light contractor will be working along 42nd Avenue South in Tukwila, WA to repair existing electrical conduits and install new vaults. This work will enhance the electrical system’s reliability and reduce the likelihood of unplanned power outages.

Contracted crews will be working on the east side of the sidewalk on 42nd Avenue South to complete these repairs, which may cause some noise due to heavy equipment. However, the contractor will adhere to the City of Tukwila’s noise ordinance.
The contractor will require a road closure (with local access) to set the electrical vault with a crane.
Access to most driveways will be maintained at all times. Others, near the work area will have temporary driveways and routed access.
In order for crews to do their work safely, maintenance power outages are required. Contracted crews will notify affected customers at least 24 hours in advance of any outage. The notifications will specify the date, time and duration of the outages.
This project is tentative to start in late October 2017. Construction will last approximately two months. Daily work hours are from Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., with possible weekend work. Any scheduled weekend work will be coordinated with the City of Tukwila.

Starting in mid-January 2017, a Seattle City Light contractor will be working in the Capitol Hill neighborhood to install underground electrical conduit, vaults and associated equipment in parts of East Union Street from 10th to 11th Avenue. This work is aligned with the City of Seattle’s ordinance to underground power lines in this area.
Contracted crews will begin the first stage of work on East Union Street at the intersections of 10th and 11th avenues. Crews will be potholing and trenching in these areas.

There will be parking restrictions within the construction work area as trucks and equipment will be staged on site. Traffic control flaggers will be used to maintain access along the construction work area. Excavated areas will be covered over with steel plates during non-work hours. Access to businesses will be open at all times.
Daily work hours are from Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This stage of work is anticipated for completion in February 2017. Once completed, crews will transition to other stages of work within the project zone. The entire project is expected to last approximately five months.

Seattle City Light recently repaired a segment of underground electrical conduit at the corner of 10th Avenue and East Union Street. These repairs were needed to maintain electrical reliability for customers in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.
In order to access the damaged conduit, civil construction crews excavated through a portion of sidewalk pavement at 10th Avenue and East Union Street. The work was completed in less than a week.
