Document Description
NOTE: Response to Comments The project would be constructed as a 21 mile pipeline, parallel to, and within the existing right-of-way (ROW) of BDPL Nos. 1 and 2, which originate at the Irvington Tunnel Portal in Fremont, pass through the cities of Fremont and Newark in Alameda County, cross the Bay at the Dumbarton Strait, and continue through the cities of East Pal Alto, Redwood City, Menlo Park, and unincorporated areas of San Mateo County. The project (also referred to as "BDPL No. 5") would include a seven-mile "reach" (or sub-segment) in the East Bay that begins approximately 100 feet east of Mission Boulevard, near the Irvington Tunnel Portal, and continues westward through the cities of Fremont and Newark to the Newark Valve Lot. A proposed five-mile tunnel would extend from the Newark Valve Lot to the Ravenswood Valve Lot in Menlo Park, crossing beneath the Bay. From the Ravenswood Valve Lot, BDPL No. 5 would extend nine miles westward to the Pulgas Tunnel Portal in unincorporated San Mateo County. The project would also include: new facilities at six existing valve lot locations, including new concrete vale vaults and control buildings that house electrical control panels, isolation valves, mechanical equipment, and cross-connections between BDPL No. 5 and the existing BDPL os1. 1 and 2; new flow-metering vaults at Driscoll Road in Fremont and Hassler Road in Redwood City; and a new fiber optic cable installed on existing towers between PG&E's Ravenswood Substation in Menlo Park and its Ames Substation in Mountain View.
