Seattle City Light’s work to rebuild the electrical system at Seattle Center requires a six-hour-long planned outage from 12:01 a.m. to 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 16.

During this outage, Seattle City Light underground crews will be pulling out old cable and performing critical maintenance work on some of the automated switches.  The area affected by the outage is bordered by Mercer Street on the north, Denny Way on the south, 5th Avenue on the east and 1st Avenue on the west. All customers affected by the planned outage have been notified.  This is the last planned outage needed at Seattle Center in 2010.

The electrical system serving the Seattle Center campus is aging.  This work is part of a systemic replacement of the system.   Additional outages will be required in 2011.  If further information is needed, please contact Mark VanOss at (206) 684-3279 or email him at mark.vanoss@seattle.gov
