SR-305 closed from NE Hidden Cove Road to NE Day Road overnight December 20 while crews replace power lines

To maintain safe and reliable power, PSE will replace several power lines that cross over State Route (SR) 305 in two areas: at the intersection with NE Hidden Cove Road and north of the intersection with NE Day Road. To minimize impacts to our customers and the traveling public, crews will work at night from December 20 at 9 p.m. to December 21 at 5 a.m. To complete this work safely, we will turn off power to some customers served by these lines. We are providing more information about this planned power outage to the affected customers.

During this work, SR-305 will be closed from NE Hidden Cove Rd. to NE Day Rd. on Dec. 20 at 9 p.m. to Dec. 21 at 5 a.m. In addition, NE Hidden Cove Rd. will be closed at the intersection with SR-305. We will provide local access, as needed. Please follow the northbound and southbound detour routes; the detour routes are identified in the list below and on the map above. Flaggers and police officers will direct traffic. We apologize for these inconveniences. 

If weather is not suitable for doing this work on December 20, we may reschedule this work for early 2024. We will inform you if the schedule changes.
