Starting in mid-June, Puget Sound Energy (PSE) crews will be putting in new poles and new wiring along East Lake Sammamish Parkway between Northeast 28th Place and Marymoor Storage, just south of Northeast 65th Street. The work, mostly Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., is expected to last for about four months. Signs and traffic-control flaggers will guide drivers and cyclists through the work area.

In addition to putting up new wood poles, PSE will be installing "tree wire," a specially coated overhead wire that significantly reduces power outages caused by falling tree branches. Residents with questions should contact PSE Project Manager Jeremy Tuntland at 253-395-6973 or Jeremy.tuntland@pse.com. Please reference job #101095787.
