Electrical Upgrades Planned in the Delridge Neighborhood

Seattle City Light crews plan to upgrade the electrical reliability of the Delridge neighborhood by replacing aging utility poles, overhead wire, and equipment along Southwest Brandon Street, 21st Avenue Southwest, Southwest Andover Street, and 23rd Avenue Southwest. These improvements will support growth for future electrical infrastructure in the area while reducing unplanned power outages.

Seattle City Light crews plan to upgrade the electrical reliability of the Delridge neighborhood by replacing aging utility poles, overhead wires and equipment along Southwest Brandon Street, 21st Avenue Southwest, Southwest Andover Street, and 23rd Avenue Southwest. These improvements will support growth for future electrical infrastructure in the area while reducing unplanned power outages.

Construction will occur on 21st Avenue Southwest and associated surrounding areas.

This project is scheduled to begin in January 2020 and will have impacts to the surrounding areas. Crews will reduce traffic and parking impacts by working in one area at a time. Traffic will be restricted and “No Park” signs will be enforced in work zones. The signs will be removed once work has been completed.

Maintenance power outages are required to complete the upgrade safely. Notifications will be provided in advance of the outages. The notification will specify the date, time and duration of the outage.
