Started in February 2016 and continuing through approximately May 20, 2016, Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) Company will be upgrading a natural gas main along a portion of Mitchell Avenue. The project involves the trenching and installation of approximately 2,000 feet of new 4-inch gas main and associated lateral re-connections beneath Mitchell Avenue, between West Lincoln Street and Hewitt Avenue. Gas customers of PG&E that will be affected by this work will be notified by the utility When completed, the new main will provide more capacity and safer, more reliable gas service to customers.
There will be a variety of traffic control devices, mainly lane shifts, put in place during the course of construction to safely convey vehicular and pedestrian traffic through the project work zones. In addition, the traffic signals at the intersections of Mitchell/Lincoln and Mitchell/Myers will periodically be placed into 4-way red flash during portions of the project. Motorists can expect traffic delays during this 3 month project, and are urged to proceed with caution through the work zones in order to protect the PG&E employees and City inspectors working in the road. For questions about this project please contact PG&E at (916) 936-7649.
