Lake Forest Park pole replacement starts February 4th

Seattle City Light’s contractor, Potelco, will be replacing fifty-nine aging utility poles in portions of Lake Forest Park beginning in February. Affected customers will be receiving a letter detailing the work. The project is necessary maintenance and will improve electrical reliability.

Besides installing the new poles, crews will relocate the old pole’s electrical wires to the new poles and replace equipment.

The start date for work is February 4, 2013 and the project should take six to eight weeks. Once the electrical equipment is relocated to the new poles it will take a few weeks for the other utility companies to make their transfer, so City Light can remove the old pole. City Light will monitor the situation to ensure the old poles are removed in a timely manner.
