South Bay Crossing Electric Reliability Project
Improving service reliability on the San Francisco Peninsula
Pacific Gas and Electric Company will soon begin a project to upgrade the electric transmission lines crossing San Francisco Bay between PG&E’s Eastshore Substation in Hayward and the PG&E San Mateo Substation in San Mateo. This project will improve service reliability to homes and businesses on the San Francisco Peninsula.
(Sept - Dec 2013)
Beginning in late September, you may see construction activity on transmission towers and lines running across the San Francisco Bay, parallel to the San Mateo Bridge. During the majority of the project, crews will work from helicopters to modify existing tower equipment, replace wires and upgrade existing transmission lines. The majority of the work on the project will be conducted Mondays through Fridays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the project is currently scheduled to be completed in December 2013.
The use of helicopters will help to minimize traffic impacts and the need to access property near the construction area. In the event that we need to block parking spaces so our crews can safely conduct their work around the towers, we will work with local cities to post “No Parking” signs at least 72 hours in advance to help you plan ahead for alternative parking.
Your electric service should not be interrupted as part of this construction. However, if it is necessary to temporarily disrupt service, you will be notified in writing at least seven days in advance.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Black & Veatch Construction, Inc. project representative, Miguel Martinez, by phone at 1-855-472-5224 or email at email@example.com.
