For those of you impacted by the PG&E gas line replacement project on Neroly Road and Main Street the end is near.
The pipe installation was completed as of 12/31/12.
PG&E will be venting natural gas in Oakley, near Bridgehead Road, beginning today January 11th through tomorrow January 12th , as crews prepare to connect a newly replaced section of pipeline into the natural gas system.
You may smell natural gas and hear a hissing noise while gas is released from the pipeline in a safe and controlled manner. Although the situation is safe, please call PG&E at 1-800-743-5000 with any safety concerns or learn more about gas safety at www.PGE.com.
If your gas service will be affected, PG&E will contact you directly to re-light your pilot light.
There are still some locations where they need to finish pulling out shoring and to complete the trench backfill. This work should be completed possibly by the end of this week assuming the pressure testing was satisfactory.
Pavement restoration work should be able to be completed within two to three weeks. Temperatures will play a critical role in when this will be begin since they need a minimum of temperature 50° to pave. High day time temperatures of around 50° or lower are expected to linger through the middle of next week so they should be able to mobilize within the next few days to be ready to start then.
