NE Baker Hill Road

Project overview

As part of an ongoing effort to improve electric safety and reliability on Bainbridge Island, we replaced 0.36 miles of electric wire with tree wire on NE Baker Hill Road between Lynwood Center Road NE and Blakey Avenue NE. Tree wire is a specially coated, overhead wire that’s designed to prevent an electric short (and subsequent outage) when a tree limb falls into a power line. By installing tree wire in other locations in PSE’s service area, we’ve reduced power outages caused by falling limbs by up to 95%.

We began work on this project in 2022 and completed it in August 2023.
