City Light Completes Electrical Reliability Upgrades in Blue Ridge

In late 2018, Seattle City Light completed an electrical reliability project in Seattle’s Blue Ridge and North Beach neighborhoods. The work was part of a larger effort to replace an aging electrical system that was installed in the early 1970s.

Construction was shared into two phases over a two year period, starting in 2016. In total, contracted crews installed over 20,000 linear feet of electrical conduit, several electrical vaults and other infrastructure in parts of the Blue Ridge area.

The new infrastructure will provide an enhanced and reliable electrical system for the Blue Ridge and North Beach neighborhoods. Customers can expect shorter restoration times when unplanned power outages occur.

City Light thanks the Blue Ridge and North Beach communities for their patience during this important electrical upgrade. Learn more about this project and others by visiting Seattle City Light’s “At Work in Your Neighborhood” website.
