Seattle City Light & Occidental Avenue Alley: A Milestone

Seattle City Light has made great strides in upgrading the electrical reliability of Pioneer Square and improving the looks of Occidental Avenue Alley. City Light crews excavated and replaced aging underground duct banks in the alley just east of Occidental Park earlier this year. In June, a contractor helped the project reach a milestone by restoring the alley with Pioneer Square Preservation Board-approved brick. When complete, the project will not only help increase the reliability and capacity of Pioneer Square; but also, the downtown electrical system.

Civil construction crews will be installing a new electrical duct bank, which will upgrade aging electrical infrastructure in the SODO and Pioneer Square areas.
