PARADISE—PG&E continues to upgrade a gas pipeline along Pearson Road.
PG&E is replacing the current 2- and 4-inch high-pressure pipes with a new 6-inch plastic line that will provide increased capacity to stay ahead of growing demand and to better serve customers in Paradise.
The work started in mid-September.
The work involves trenching as well as directional boring to install 2,000 feet of new gas main along Pearson Road between Clark and Newland roads. The new line will connect to an 8-inch plastic line that runs along Clark Road and a 6-inch plastic line that continues east on Pearson Road at Newland Road.
Most of the new line will be installed on the north side of Pearson Road. The line will run along the south side of Pearson Road between the west end of Glen Circle and Newland Road.
PG&E will continue to minimize any disruptions to motorists, but at times Pearson Road will have temporary traffic delays and one-way controls.
The project is expected to last through November, with work occurring from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday weather permitting, except holidays. PG&E crews will perform the work.
PG&E will continue to reach out to residents along the route to keep them informed of the project.
There will be some brief gas service interruptions to some residents along the route as PG&E places the new line into service later this year. PG&E will contact these customers directly with more details as work progresses.
