Traffic Advisory: Lane Reductions in Alhambra and Rosemead for Pipeline Inspection Project

WHAT: SoCalGas will be performing a safety inspection on a segment of natural gas pipeline in Alhambra starting on August 27 and in Rosemead starting on September 4. Crews are expected to work on the natural gas pipeline through November 2018.     

To perform this pipeline inspection safely, northbound traffic on Walnut Grove Avenue between Fern Avenue and Klingerman Street in the city of Rosemead will be reduced to one lane. Traffic on Front Street between Marengo Avenue and Benito Avenue in Alhambra will be reduced to one lane. Traffic control signs and cones will help direct the flow of traffic. There will be parking restrictions on Walnut Grove Avenue in Rosemead and Front Street in Alhambra around the construction site. Residents and local businesses may hear some work-related noise. During work hours, commuters passing by the work site will see excavation, equipment and vehicles.

No interruption to natural gas service is anticipated.

Customers may smell the odor of natural gas. Although this is normal when crews are working, SoCalGas encourages anyone who smells gas to call us at 1-800-427-2200. SoCalGas is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
