City Light Completes Streetlight Infrastructure Upgrades in Shelby-Hamlin

This past fall, contracted crews completed a six-month project to replace an aging streetlight system in the Shelby-Hamlin/Montlake area. Crews replaced the streetlight fixtures, poles and underground infrastructure with updated equipment. The new fixtures were selected, based on community feedback from local residents.

Seattle City Light continues to improve customer safety by converting streetlights in our service area from high-pressure sodium lights to energy-efficient light emitting diodes, or LEDs. The new LED lights support visibility and safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers.

The new streetlight system will provide improved, reliable lighting for the neighborhood. City Light thanks residents and businesses for their patience during construction.
