Over the next two weeks, you may notice some heavy duty construction equipment in the downtown area of Mill Valley, as crews prepare to start a gas pipeline replacement project, city officials said Monday.

According to an announcement from the city of Mill Valley, the project isn't slated to start until March 10, but over the course of the next few weeks, PG&E crews will begin prepping the area, setting up for construction, and possibly beginning excavation.

"The purpose of this project is to enhance gas service to PG&E customers by replacing the gas lines with modern piping that is more resistant to corrosion and earth movement," the city said.  "The replacement pipes will create a safer and more reliable natural gas system."

Here's more from the city about how the construction will be carried out: 

The work will first start on Gardner Street and then move down to Throckmorton. Construction work will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. but customers may see PG&E trucks in the area after 5:00 p.m. The reason being that even though construction is complete by 5 p.m., often times we remain in the area to work with customers, relight pilot lights, etc. 

PG&E and City staff are making every effort to mitigate traffic impacts during construction in the downtown area and are working with the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce to notify local businesses and residents of the planned work. The City is also working closely with PG&E to ensure that the construction work will not affect emergency vehicle access or response times. 

The City and PG&E will provide regular updates to the community regarding the project. Please visit the Downtown Pipeline Replacement Project page for news, information, and contact information. 

If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please call PG&E at 1-800-743-5000
