The tree removal has begun for the PG&E Gas Line Replacement project near #8 tee. Trees are being removed to facilitate a new pipe for Line #109 which runs the entire Peninsula. The new 24" steel pipe will be bored beneath Alpine Road surfacing in a receiving pit in front of the Red tee on #8. From there it will be trenched through the cart path toward the creek, eventually connecting to the pipe in the creek that was re-coated a few years ago.
The tree work is expected to take a little over a week, the entire project is hoped to be completed by early October. Please respect the safety barriers, and use caution in the area.
