PG&E is upgrading 200 feet of natural gas distribution pipe in north Redding, the energy mogul announced today.
The upgrade runs along Twin View Boulevard across the intersection of Midway Drive to replace an existing 2” steel pipe with a 4” steel pipe allowing an increase of natural gas capacity in the area.
“This pipe replacement project will improve the safety, capacity and integrity of the natural gas system,” said Erik Kurtz, gas distribution superintendent for PG&E’s North Valley and Sierra divisions.
One-way traffic control will be in place at Twin View Boulevard Monday through Saturday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. until approximately January 24 as they dig a trench and install the pipe in the northbound lane of Twin View Boulevard. Midway Drive will be closed 24 hours a day from Twin View Boulevard for a couple hundred feet east along Midway Drive until the work is completed.
No customers are expected to lose natural gas service during the project. The smell of gas in the area may also occur as crews vent pipes during the project. PG&E encourages anyone who has concerns about natural gas odors in or around their home or business to call us at 1-800-743-5000.
