Traffic Advisory: SoCalGas to Perform Pipeline Modernization Project in Calipatria Beginning on September 24


Infrastructure upgrades are part of a multi-billion-dollar safety enhancement program


WHAT: On September 24, 2018, SoCalGas will begin a pipeline modernization project at two locations in Calipatria. The first site is near the intersection of Brown Avenue and Yuma Street. The second site is near the intersection of Blair Road and Young Road.  To perform the pipeline work safely, northbound lanes on both Brown Avenue and Blair Road will be closed during work hours. Traffic signs will be posted to help direct the flow of traffic.

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.

WHERE: Brown Avenue and Yuma Street, as shown in this link, and Blair Road and Young Road, as shown in this link, in the city of Calipatria.

WHEN: Work hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning September 24.  Crews are expected to work on the natural gas pipeline through December 2018.  

NOTE: This effort 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.
