Pacific Gas & Electric plans to upgrade plastic gas lines on many streets in Roseville to improve safety.
The utility will upgrade 11,000 feet of pipe that delivers natural gas to homes and businesses from mid-February through July.
Crews will install new two-inch gas line in the areas of Hill Avenue, Lomlas Avenue, Encinal Avenue, San Juan Avenue, Valencia Avenue, Sierra Boulevard, Shasta Street, Yosemite Street, Sequoia Street, Alta Vista Avenue, Berry Street, Tiger Way, Patty Street, East Street, Walton Way, Manzanita Avenue and Lassen Way.
Work will occur from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Workers will usually install the new pipe by boring beneath the street.
The new pipes will be pressure-tested before being placed in service, according to a PG&E press release. PG&E plans to work with any customers who will have a short gas service interruption.
The smell of natural gas might be detected by residents when crews vent gas from existing pipeline. The natural gas will quickly dissipate and is not harmful, PG&E said.
