Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will be replacing sections of natural gas pipeline underneath Winslow Street, between Fuller Street and Whipple Avenue, with additional construction work on Whipple Avenue, in Redwood City staring Mon., Dec. 16. This is part of the city's system-wide program to ensure the safety of the transmission pipelines that deliver gas across the region.
Work is expected to start on December 16th, and last through the winter season, although weather and other factors affecting safe working conditions could change the schedule. We anticipate that work will not impact, or take place, on any holidays or holiday-related events in this area of Redwood City.
What to expect
This project involves excavating around the existing underground pipeline and installing new pipe using industry recognized and proven installation techniques. During construction, you will see PG&E and our contractor ARB's trucks and other heavy equipment. Your gas service will continue without interruption in most cases. If that changes, a PG&E representative will contact you.
This work will affect traffic on Winslow Street and Whipple Avenue on weekdays between the hours of 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. PG&E will clearly mark all work areas, and traffic flaggers will help to direct traffic. Please plan for minor delays when driving through this area.
If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please call PG&E's Customer Care Representative, Austin Sharp, at 650.730.4168.
