Chinatown-International District to be without power for 20 hours

To make electrical service more reliable in the Chinatown-International District, Seattle City Light will turn off power to a portion of the neighborhood for 20 hours beginning at 11 p.m. Wednesday, according to a City Light news release.

The power shut down will allow crews to install an alternate power supply to the area. The new power supply will also provide power to the  upcoming city streetcar project, according to City Light.

Power must be turned off starting tomorrow night because City Light crews must splice the cable for the new line nine times during installation.

Customers affected by the outage have been notified by mail.
