Seattle City Light will be supporting Advanced Metering services throughout Seattle by replacing existing utility poles with taller poles to host wireless utility data collection equipment.
This month, crews in our area will be replacing poles on NW 56th St (close to the corner of 34th Ave NW). The new poles will be 70 feet tall, which is approximately 20 feet taller than the existing poles (pictured above).
This project is part of the communications network that will automate meter reading and enable enhanced services. No maintenance power outages are planned for this work.
Daily work hours are from Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. In most cases, the work to transfer existing equipment and install the data collection equipment can be completed in one day.
