Seattle City Light to Repair Conduit on 42nd Avenue South

In late October 2017, a Seattle City Light contractor will be working along 42nd Avenue South in Tukwila, WA to repair existing electrical conduits and install new vaults. This work will enhance the electrical system's reliability and reduce the likelihood of unplanned power outages.

Contracted crews will be working on the east side of the sidewalk on 42nd Avenue South to complete these repairs, which may cause some noise due to heavy equipment. However, the contractor will adhere to the City of Tukwila’s noise ordinance.

The contractor will require a road closure (with local access) to set the electrical vault with a crane.

Access to most driveways will be maintained at all times. Others, near the work area will have temporary driveways and routed access.

In order for crews to do their work safely, maintenance power outages are required. Contracted crews will notify affected customers at least 24 hours in advance of any outage. The notifications will specify the date, time and duration of the outages.

This project is tentative to start in late October 2017. Construction will last approximately two months. Daily work hours are from Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., with possible weekend work. Any scheduled weekend work will be coordinated with the City of Tukwila.
