Project is part of a multi-billion-dollar pipeline safety program
WHAT: On July 10, at 9 a.m., SoCalGas will begin a natural gas pipeline replacement project along Highway 1 in the city of Lompoc in Santa Barbara County. This is part of a larger San Luis Obispo County/Lompoc project that began earlier this spring.
Customers are not anticipated to experience any natural gas service interruptions.
WHERE: During construction, one northbound and one southbound lane on Highway 1 near the Santa Ynez River – north of the Lompoc Airport – will close. Lane closures will be in effect on Highway 1 from the Santa Ynez River to George Miller Drive. Lane closures will be in effect the following work hours and days:
· 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday;
· 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday nights; and,
· 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays.
WHEN: Work begins on July 10 and will continue through October.
NOTE: This natural gas pipeline replacement project is part of SoCalGas’ Pipeline Safety Enhancement Plan (PSEP), a multi-billion-dollar program that tests and updates the natural gas pipeline infrastructure in Southern California. SoCalGas’ five-year capital plan includes $6 billion in infrastructure investments, including approximately $1.2 billion this year for improvements to distribution, transmission and storage systems and for pipeline safety.
Customers with questions or concerns about the construction work may call SoCalGas’ Customer Contact Center 24-hours a day, seven-days a week at 800-427-2200. Our top priorities are to work safely and to provide the communities we serve safe and reliable natural gas service.
