Seattle City Light will continue final electrical relocation activities on the east side of Alaskan Way, between Virginia and Pine streets.

  • This work is the final step in completing the most significant electrical relocation that began this spring.
  • Work is expected to last at least three weeks and will involve jack hammering to remove the existing roadway, trenching, installation of new electrical infrastructure and restoring the roadway. Working hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, with extended hours possible. Advance notice will be given of any night work.
  • Excavated areas will be covered with steel plates at the end of each working day. Steel plates will be firmly secured to reduce noise impacts.
  • Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times.
