Lights Added to the Tower Crane

The contractor has added lights to the horizontal swing arm (boom) portion of the tower crane to increase safety for helicopter landings. These are in addition to the lights at the end of the boom and on the crane operator’s cab. With the changing of the seasons, it is darker in the morning and evening hours and the additional lights will assist the helicopter pilots in identifying the location of the boom when landing or departing the helipad in the dark. While the lights are visible from the ground, they are not bright enough to interfere with any neighboring properties. As a reminder, the tower crane is scheduled to remain onsite through August 2020. For questions, please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org.
