PG&E crews will begin building new underground electric and gas utilities in the Coffey Park neighborhood beginning Monday, April 2. Much of the underground electrical equipment in the Coffey Park area, such as cables and transformers, was destroyed during the fire due to high temperatures and needs to be completely replaced, along with approximately 13 miles of electric cable. PG&E will also install approximately 15 miles of new gas mains and service lines and place it within the same trench.

PG&E has divided Coffey Park into five project areas, and their crews will initiate work in each project area on different dates throughout the month of April. To view the schedule for when work will initiate in each area, please refer to the project area map. Work will continue in each project area simultaneously once initiated. PG&E aims to complete the Coffey Park construction and have permanent gas and electricity turned on by the end of the year.

Customers will see equipment moving to and from the staging area located on Coffey and Dennis lanes, along with flaggers directing the heavy loads. All personnel are required to carry a valid photo I.D. There will be five crews, working 12 hours a day onsite.
