Planned Power Outage for Seattle Center

Seattle City Light is planning power outages to replace aging wiring at the Seattle Center campus. The first is scheduled for tonight at 11 p.m. until Friday at 7 a.m.

Seattle City Light’s work to rebuild the electrical system at Seattle Center requires a planned outage from 11 p.m. today until 7 a.m. Friday.

New cable will be pulled in and connected along a Thomas Street section of the system.  The area affected by the outage is bordered by Mercer Street on the north, Denny Way on the south, 5th Avenue North of the east and 1st Avenue North on the west.

The electrical system serving the Seattle Center campus is aging.  This work is part two of three phases in a systemic replacement of the system.   Three additional outages will be needed to complete phase two.  The next outage is planned for Monday, Sept. 20, at 10 p.m. until Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 7 a.m.
