Starting in late August 2020, Seattle City Light will upgrade the underdeck high pressure sodium (HPS) light fixtures at the State Route 99 overpass on South Cloverdale Street. The lights will be replaced with new light emitting diode (LED) fixtures that will improve pedestrian and traffic safety. This work was previously scheduled in April 2020 and pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Customers can expect sidewalk and lane restrictions in the immediate work area during construction hours. Traffic control flaggers will be used to maintain traffic and pedestrian safety through the work areas. Some noise is expected during construction.
Construction is scheduled to start in late August 2020. The planned duration is approximately two to three months. Crews will be working Mondays through Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Some weekend work may be required during this project.
