Southern Heights Bridge Utility Work Underway

Posted on December 20, 2019

Southern Heights

For over one year, City staff and the design team have coordinated with impacted utilities on the Southern Heights Bridge replacement project. In late October, PG&E gas crews began the process of installing a new gas main on both approaches to the bridge and deactivating the gas line currently attached to the old bridge. Work is nearing completion, but has been hampered by the rainy weather over the past month. We also received the last utility coordination documents this week that Caltrans will need in order for the City to receive approval of its Right of Way Certification document, which certifies that the City has done its due diligence working with the utility companies and private property owners. Our next step will be to request permission to from Caltrans to advertise the project and receive bids. We anticipate being in a position to advertise in March with construction beginning in summer 2020.
