Seattle City Light is conducting the first of two planned power outages to repair damage from the March 13 power outage on the Seattle Center campus. The first is scheduled for April 22, 12:01 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. The second will be targeted for mid to late May. No date has been set yet.
The affected outage area is bordered by: Mercer Street to the North; Denny Way to the South; 5th Avenue N to the East; and 1st Avenue N to the West.
The primary feed line has been out of service since the March outage, and so the Seattle Center campus has been running on the secondary (back-up) feed. These two planned outages will promote the replacement of one of the aging primary feed lines. Two outages have been planned because of the size and scope of the issue.
Notifications letters have been sent to those off-campus customers who reside on the perimeter of Seattle Center and will be affected by the outage.
Seattle Center will set up temporary exterior lighting on the campus in seven locations during the outage to provide some level of light and safety.
If you have any questions, please contact Mark VanOss, Seattle City Light, Communications and Public Affairs, at (206) 684-3279.
