Westbound lanes on Sand Hill Road between Branner Drive and Saga Lane will close during daytime hours as Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) continues to replace a 24" segment of gas pipeline in Menlo Park.
Starting Thursday (Aug. 23), the lanes will close from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. According to the city, the eastbound side of Sand Hill Road will carry traffic in both directions during PG&E's working hours.
The pipeline replacement started on Aug. 15 and should finish by the end of October, according to Menlo Park Public Works Director Chip Taylor. A segment of pipe across Alpine Road, south of Sand Hill Road, will also be replaced.
Once the new pipe is in place, the utility company is required to repave the portion of Sand Hill Road within the project boundaries.
For more information, call PG&E at 1-888-743-7431.
The Almanac initially reported that the lane closure was not on Sand Hill Road. The story has been updated with the correct information and we regret the error.
