Disruptions to Palo Alto traffic continue as PG&E workers inspect gas lines running beneath the city.
This week, workers will replace a pipeline segment along Charleston between Middlefield Road and Alma Street.
That project is on track to meet its deadline for completion before school begins Aug. 16, PG&E said.
At the intersection of Embarcadero Road and East Bayshore Road, PG&E said it was nearing completion of excavation, inspection of corroded pipeline and replacement of a gas valve. The utility planned to start "restoration work" this week, with full restoration by the end of July.
In early August, PG&E plans to begin pipeline replacement along Miranda between Arastradero and Page Mill Road.
PG&E will explain the project at a July 31 open house at the Palo Alto Christian Reformed Church, 687 Arastradero Road. The open house runs from 4 to 6 p.m.
PG&E has established a public inquiry line for gas systems projects at 1-888-743-7431.
The pipeline-inspection program follows the September 2010 explosion in San Bruno of a PG&E transmission line. The explosion and resulting fire killed eight people and destroyed 38 homes.
