PG&E Pipeline Work May Impact Traffic

Lane closures expected on White Lane and Union Avenue

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is modernizing and inspecting a portion of natural gas pipeline near the intersection of White Lane and Gosford Road heading east to the intersection of White Lane and Union Avenue, then north on Union Avenue to Brundage Lane in Bakersfield. The work began this coming week and is expected to be completed by November.

One lane on the eastbound side of White Lane and northbound lane of Union Avenue will be closed periodically between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays and from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. There will be traffic controls near the intersections of White Lane and Wible Road as well as Gosford and Pacheco Roads between 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m on weekdays.

Crews are upgrading about 15 feet of transmission gas pipeline and inspecting about nine miles of transmission pipeline. PG&E is notifying customers when the work is on or near any private property. We appreciate the communities patience as we work in these areas.
