PG&E will replace sections of natural gas pipeline under part of Redwood City beginning Dec. 16 and running through the winter season.
The pipeline targeted runs under Winslow Street between Fuller Street and Whipple Avenue. Work will also be done on Whipple Avenue. The work is part of system-wide program of ensuring transmission line safety, according to Pacific Gas and Electric.
Work isn’t expected to happen or impact holidays or holiday-related events in Redwood City but the schedule length could change depending on factors like weather. The project requires digging around the existing underground pipeline and installing new pipe. Residents may smell gas and hear a loud, steady noise when the gas is vented but customers should have no service interruptions, according to the utility.
Traffic on Winslow Street and Whipple Avenue will be 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays and PG&E plans to mark the area and use flaggers.
Questions and concerns can be directed to PG&E’s customer care representative Austin Sharp at 730-4168. Gas smells should be reported 24/7 at (800) 743-5000.
