By master · October 7th, 2010 · No Comments

Seattle City Light crews are reattaching a 20 foot section of a transmission tower on the north side of the Lake Washington Ship Canal next to the Burke Gilman Trail. That work will require the closing of the trail today (10/7) from 8am to 4pm. The closure is approximately from Phinney Ave to Stone Way. Traffic will be diverted onto North 34th Street.

Similar work on the tower on the south side of the canal is already finished. The high voltage lines that are held by the towers will be restrung across the canal next summer.
