Seattle City Light recently completed the final upgrades on several utility poles in support of the Advanced Metering program. Crews replaced 27 different poles across City Light’s service territory with new 70-foot poles and wireless infrastructure.

The taller pole helps support the new wireless equipment by transmitting data for the utility. A wireless communications network is also in place to help support the Advanced Metering program, which will automate meter reading and enable enhanced services for City Light customers.

Throughout the project, crews also used the opportunity to upgrade the infrastructure and replace poles in poor condition.

City Light appreciates the patience of its customers during the construction of this project.
