PG&E Utility Maintenance Activities, Encroachment Permit # 0223-6US-0001
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
PG&E is proposing to replace an existing gas main in the Interstate 5 (I-5) right-of-way (ROW) in Shasta County at post mile R17.871. As part of the proposed work, bell holes (5 feet wide by 5 feet wide by 4 feet deep) would be excavated on either side of the highway (outside the ROW) to expose the ends of a 266-foot-long protective casing that traverses the width of the highway. Using the bell holes, the existing gas line would be removed from the casing and replaced with either a 6-inch plastic pipe or a 4-inch steel pipe (fit dependent). Once the new gas main is in place, the bell holes would be backfilled. The purpose of the project is to provide reliable utility services to PG&E customers. Traffic control would be performed during the proposed work. Caltrans would issue an encroachment permit to allow for the proposed work to occur within State right-of-way.
