Washington Street Vault Work Extended

Seattle City Light’s work on a new underground utility vault on South Washington Street between Third Avenue and Second Avenue Extension has been extended.

Seattle City Light’s work on a new underground utility vault on South Washington Street between Third Avenue and Second Avenue Extension in the Pioneer Square neighborhood has been extended.

During installation of the vault Saturday, July 9, we discovered several pieces of the custom-made vault walls were improperly fitted. Work was immediately stopped and the pieces sent back for reconfiguration.

The revised schedule will close Washington Street on Saturday, July 16, between 3rd Avenue and 2nd Avenue Extension while the crane is used to move the vault into place. The street will be closed on Saturday only. Work will continue at the vault on Sunday, July, 17, and possibly Monday, July 18.
