Upcoming Gas Safety Work
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is working with customers and communities to help ensure first responders and safety crews have immediate access to natural gas transmission pipelines in case of an emergency. PG&E recently identified approximately 11 trees along Stevens Creek Trail that are located too close to the gas pipeline and need to be removed for safety reasons.
This work is anticipated to begin Wednesday, October 28, 2020 and take approximately three days to complete. A section of the trail near Moffett Boulevard will be closed. A detour in place while work is underway, which will utilize the main trail, and is shown in the map.
