Traffic Advisory: Lane Reductions in Placentia for SoCalGas Pipeline Inspection Project to Begin on March 18
Infrastructure upgrades are part of a multi-billion-dollar safety enhancement program

WHAT: SoCalGas will be performing a safety inspection on natural gas pipeline in Placentia starting on March 18. Crews are expected to work in the area through April 2019.

To perform the pipeline work safely, southbound lanes on Placentia Avenue will be reduced to one lane near the construction site during work hours.

Traffic control signs and cones will help direct the flow of traffic. Residents and local businesses near the construction site may hear some work-related noise. During the 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.

WHERE: Placentia Avenue, between East Via Burton and Orangethorpe Avenue in the city of Placentia, as shown in this link

WHEN: Lanes will be reduced from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning March 18 through April 2019 depending on weather and other factors. Night work will occur the week of April 15 from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., Monday through Friday.
