Civil construction crews installed new conduit (duct bank) and an electrical vault on East John Street and Summit Avenue East. The electrical infrastructure installations will allow Seattle Parks and Recreation to proceed with their renovation project to enhance Summit Slope Park.

Sidewalks and planting strips that were impacted by the construction project were temporarily restored. A Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) arborist was also at hand during construction to ensure the protection of trees that were impacted by the project. Seattle City Light appreciates the patience of its customers during the construction for this project.
