Pacific Gas and Electric Company officials say crews will be replacing 11,000 feet of gas distribution line beginning in the middle of this month.

"The project will improve safety and integrity of the pipelines that deliver natural gas to homes and businesses in that area."

Brandi Ehlers is with PG&E. She says crews will install a new two-inch plastic gas line in the areas of Manzanita Avenue, Sierra Boulevard, Sequoia Street and more than a dozen other roads.
 
Ehlers says crews will be installing the new pipe by boring beneath the street surface to help reduce traffic disruptions.
 
"One other thing to note - throughout the project crews will vent natural gas from the existing pipeline in a safe and controlled manner."
 
Ehlers says that means you may smell natural gas depending on which way the wind is blowing. But she says it will quickly dissipate and not be dangerous.
 
The work is scheduled to be completed in July.
