Puget Sound Energy natural gas projects

Green Lake and Wallingford-area natural gas main replacement projects

Project updates

Project overview

PSE is upgrading the natural gas system in the Wallingford and Green Lake communities. This work involves replacing the existing underground natural gas main, installed in 1979, with new, corrosion-resistant plastic pipe. We’ll also be replacing individual service lines to some homes and businesses.

This work is part of our ongoing effort to deliver safe and reliable energy to our Seattle customers.


Wallingford-area natural gas upgrade project

  • We’re working to replace approximately 5,800 feet of natural gas main in the Wallingford area. Gas main installation along the entire route is on track for completion by mid-July.
  • Our contractor crews from AA Asphalting, Inc. are scheduled to begin restoration work along N 50th Street in late July through early August.
    • They will then complete road restoration along the remaining project segments. We anticipate this work will be completed by early fall 2019.
  • Refer to the map for detailed information and a project timeline.

Green Lake-area natural gas upgrade project

  • To date, we have replaced approximately 4,500 feet of gas main, which is approximately half of the project.
    • Gas main installation along N 80th Street and intersecting streets is complete.
    • Crews will continue gas main installation work along East Green Lake Drive N and intersecting streets. This work is expected to continue through fall 2019.
  • Our contractor crews from AA Asphalting, Inc. are expected to begin road restoration along N 80th Street in late July.
    • Following the completion of the entire gas main installation project, restoration crews will complete work along the remaining project segments. We anticipate this work will be completed in fall 2019.
  • Refer to the map for detailed information and a project timeline.

Construction schedule

  • Standard work hours are Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., although some night / weekend work may be needed.
  • The restoration schedule is dependent upon weather, permitting and crew availability.
  • We will continue to keep the local community updated as the projects continue.
  • Reach out to us at majorprojects@pse.com and we’ll email you periodic construction updates.

Other projects in the area

We’ve been working proactively with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) in planning the timing of our construction to begin shortly ahead of SDOT’s Green Lake and Wallingford Paving and Multi-Modal Improvements project.

This joint coordination is an effort to minimize impacts to the local community, while maximizing cost savings and avoiding rework by completing PSE’s work under the road prior to SDOT repaving the street. Learn more about SDOT’s project here: www.seattle.gov/transportation/greenlakepaving.htm

 

The Washington State Department of Transport (WSDOT) also has road improvement work in the general vicinity. Learn more about their work here: wsdot.wa.gov/projects/index/highway/sr-99
