This work was part of a second phase to upgrade the electrical system in the Chinatown-International District, Yesler Terrace and SODO neighborhoods.

Previous work in the Chinatown-International District area was completed in June 2017. Upgrades to these three neighborhoods will support redevelopment projects and increased electrical reliability, flexibility and capacity.

City Light thanks its customers for their patience during the successful completion of this project.
