Menlo Park: Expect Sand Hill traffic delays as pipeline work shifts back to days

PG&E crews to work days on Sand Hill Road for next two weeks

Starting Thursday, Oct. 4, Pacific Gas & Electric crews will be working during the day on Sand Hill Road between Branner Drive and Saga Lane to replace a 24-inch segment of gas pipeline in Menlo Park.

Crews will be working weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. until reaching Saga Lane in approximately two weeks. At that point they'll switch back to night work to finish the replacement between Saga Lane and the Rosewood Hotel, according to Menlo Park Public Works Director Chip Taylor.

"We're hoping area residents will plan accordingly," Mr. Taylor said, as traffic delays are expected.

The project started on Aug. 15 and should finish by the end of October, according to the city.

Once the new pipe is in place, the utility company is required to repave the portion of Sand Hill Road within the project boundaries.

For more information, call PG&E at 1-888-743-7431.
