SoCalGas® is dedicated to maintaining the safety and integrity of our natural gas transmission pipelines. We routinely perform various pipeline maintenance and safety tasks, including; patrolling, inspecting, testing, repairing and replacing pipelines. Upgrading our pipeline system helps enhance public safety and helps ensure that we can continue to reliably provide natural gas to homes, businesses, schools, hospitals and power plants.
There is a construction project to upgrade the natural gas distribution pipelines in Pasadena on Lake Ave, Bell St. and Mountain St
- Estimated Start Date: June 10, 2019
- Estimated End Date: September 25, 2020
Status Update 2/17:
The work this week will tie in the natural gas main and services into new main pipeline. Westbound lane on Mountain Street will be closed from Palm Ter to El Molino Avenue. Vehicles will be routed Northbound on Palm Ter, westbound on Belvidere Street and southbound on El Molino Avenue.
What to Expect
- Daily lane closure(s)
- SoCalGas and/or its contractors’ trucks with trailers may be in the area
- Digging to lay new pipeline underground
- Intermittent dust from construction work
- Occasional construction noises
- Materials and tools in staging areas
- Temporary closure of the entry/exit gates while construction work is underway
People passing by a work site may see excavation, equipment, vehicles, and traffic control signage. The nearby community may also hear some work-related noise. Be assured businesses will be open during construction and you will be able to get home to your family.
After all inspections have been completed, a SoCalGas technician will arrive at your home to transfer your service to the new system and, with your permission, check that the natural gas appliances inside your home are operating safely.
