Utility work on 1st tied to North Link

March 10th, 2013 · 2 Comments

If you’re wondering how construction for the light rail station coming to Northgate will impact Maple Leaf residents in the next few years, you may have already noticed it beginning with utility work on First Avenue Northeast.

Sound Transit recently announced that utility work was set to begin in early March to relocate overhead power lines and poles where the trains will exit the underground tunnel in their approach to Northgate Station.

Power lines and poles on First Avenue, between Northeast 92nd and 97 streets, will be moved from west side of the street to the east side to accommodate the portal at Northeast 94th Street and First Avenue Northeast. 

That work is expected to be completed by July.
