Tower work wraps up for the year

By Doug Alder · October 21st, 2010 · 1 Comment

City Light tells us they’ve finished the major repair work on those two big steel towers that hold high voltage cables spanning the Ship Canal.  One is on the Fremont side (Phinney Ave.) and the other is on the Queen Anne side (Warren Ave). That work caused part of the Burke Gilman trail to close for a short time earlier this month.

Crews will return in the spring to pull new cables.  The goal is to bring reliable backup power from the Ballard Substation to Queen Anne and Magnolia.
