WHAT: SoCalGas will begin a pipeline installation project on Pico Boulevard between Genesee Avenue and Sierra Bonita Avenue in Inglewood starting on January 6. Crews will upgrade an existing natural gas line and service connections.

To perform this project safely, lanes will be reduced on the eastbound and westbound directions along Pico Boulevard from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  

Traffic control cones, message boards and flagmen will help direct the flow of traffic. Residents, local businesses, and commuters may hear work-related noise and see excavation equipment and vehicles during construction hours.

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.
