PG&E, which began a 24” gas pipeline replacement project on Sand Hill Road between Sand Hill Circle and Branner Drive on August 14, has extended the timeline for the project through November 30th due to unforeseen site and construction issues. PG&E continues to perform the majority of the pipeline construction work at night from 8:00 pm to 6:00 am, however more daytime construction activity from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm will be needed as the pipeline construction wraps up and the street restoration work begins.
According to Chip Taylor, Public Works Director, “a few final construction activities require large blocks of time, so PG&E will be working on a couple of upcoming Sundays from 8:00am to 6:00am on the following Monday.” Mr. Taylor also noted the schedule delay will impact the timing of the final pavement overlay. “The street will be patched over the trench for now, due to the delay pushing the project into the rainy season. The final paving across the entire half street will not take place until spring of 2013, but once complete, the street should look as good as new.”
“We’re hoping area residents will plan accordingly,” said Mr. Taylor, as continued traffic delays are anticipated.
