Drivers near Lake Avenue and Mountain Street in Pasadena will have to endure some lane reductions along those thoroughfares and others nearby as the Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) begins a multi-phase pipeline installation project starting on June 10.

Residents and local businesses will also hear some construction-related noise during work hours.

During the installation period, crews will upgrade the existing natural gas main in the areas of Lake Avenue and Mountain Street. To perform this work safely, the lane closures and parking restrictions will be necessary.

Flaggers will alternate the flow of traffic at the intersection of Mountain Street and Lake Avenue.

Additionally, the eastbound lane of Bell Street will be reduced from Lake Avenue to Mentor Avenue and the westbound lane will be reduced from Mentor Avenue to Wilson Avenue.

There will be no parking on the north and south sides of Bell Street while work continues, SoCalGas said.

The company said it does not anticipate any interruption to natural gas service throughout the installation work.

Customers may also smell the odor of natural gas while work is continuing. Although this is normal when crews are working, SoCalGas encourages anyone who smells gas to call (800) 427-2200. SoCalGas is available on the phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The SoCalGas advisory said lanes will be reduced from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Mountain Street and Lake Avenue between June 10 and July 5, depending on weather and other factors.

Lanes on Bell Street from Lake Avenue to N. Wilson Avenue will be reduced from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, from June 10 through July 26.

Customers with questions or concerns about the construction work may call (800) 427-2200.
