PG&E has begun working on replacing 1010 feet of two-inch plastic natural gas distribution main line on Highway 20 at the intersection of Moon Bend Road.
The work will begin Tuesday, March 26 and continue through early May. Traffic control will be set up on Highway 20. The westbound lane will be closed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. but the median lane will allow traffic to continue to flow through the area.
During this project PG&E will need to vent natural gas from the section of pipe, during this process the smell of natural gas and the sound of it venting from the pipe may be noticeable to homes and businesses in the area depending on wind direction.
The natural gas will quickly dissipate into the atmosphere and will not be harmful; however, PG&E encourages anyone who has concerns about natural gas odors in or around their home or business to call 1-800-743-5000, so they can safely determine the specific cause. Service to customers will not be interrupted during this work.
For more information about this work, please call me at (916) 386-5522 or (415) 973-5930. ■
