City Light to install 70 foot utility poles to support Advanced Metering

Thursday, December 1, 2016

Fremont and 193rd

Starting in December 2016, Seattle City Light will be supporting Advanced Metering services throughout the utility’s service territory by replacing existing utility poles with taller poles, which will host wireless utility data collection equipment.

There are several work sites planned for the Shoreline area in December 2016.

  • Fremont and 193rd
  • Meridian and 160th
  • Bitter Lake
The new poles will be 70 feet tall, which is about 20 feet taller than the existing poles.

Meridian and 160th

This project is part of the communications network to support Advanced Metering, which will automate meter reading and enable enhanced services.

There are no maintenance power outages planned for this work. Some traffic and parking impacts are expected in the immediate work areas. Crews will be careful to maintain access to driveways.

Aurora and 130th

Daily work hours are from Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm.
In most instances, the work to transfer existing equipment and install the data collection equipment can be completed in one day.

For more information, customers can contact JoAnna Perley, Advanced Metering Deployment Manager at 206-733-9648.

Seattle City Light’s construction website will have the latest updates.
