Seattle City Light to upgrade electronic equipment on Ballard Ave

For the remainder of the month, Seattle City Light will be supporting enhanced cellular and data services along Ballard Avenue NW. The crews will be upgrading electronic equipment to utility poles throughout the public right-of-way on this street.

This project is an expansion of existing communications networks and the equipment modifications will increase public safety and enhanced-911 capabilities. The work will also improve wireless services to areas, allowing for enhanced connectivity and faster 4G service.

During this project, City Light crews will also have the opportunity to upgrade its infrastructure and replace utility poles that are in poor condition.

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.

Construction along Ballard Avenue Northwest is anticipated to last approximately four to five weeks. See the map above to view the specific work areas.
