PG&E upgrading gas lines along Oro Quincy Highway


PG&E will begin work on a project to upgrade natural gas lines beginning Monday along Oro Quincy Highway in Oroville. The project will continue through mid-December.

Crew members will be digging trenches to install more than 4,000 feet of gas lines. Existing natural gas pipes will be replaced with new 2-inch and 4-inch diameter plastic gas distributi­on pipe lines.

PG&E said in a press release that the project will improve the safety and reliabilit­y of the local gas distributi­on system.

Crews will be working on Oro Quincy Highway between the west end of Myrtle Drive to Leonard Way, along all of Woodcrest Drive, a small portion of Myrtle Drive near the east intersecti­on of Oro Quincy Highway, small portions of the east and west ends of Casa Loma Way and a small portion of Travers Lane at Oro Quincy Highway.

Drivers can expect occasional one-way traffic controls from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and occasional Saturdays with the exception of holidays.

PG&E stated that it has sent letters and automated phone calls to customers along the work area and road signage is posted to alert drivers of upcoming delays.
