For the Next Two Weeks:  
Residents can expect to see a subcontractor filming or videotaping along the right-of-way (ROW) and at access roads. At times the production company may be zooming in on private driveways to obtain the street house number for location purposes only.

Lane Closures Monday, September 29th
Survey work will lead to periodic lane closures on Pipeline Avenue (near the flood control channel) and Chino Hills Parkway (near Veterans Park) as survey work is being done on Monday, September 29th. Two directions of travel will be maintained at all times.  The lane closures are expected to be less than one hour and will occur between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm.

Construction Activities to Expect:
• Clearing of vegetation and any impeding structures within the project area
• Installation of chain-link fencing along the project area to ensure safety of the public and project personnel during construction
• Trenching and underground drilling
• Installation of underground electric transmission wires (500 kV), conduit, vaults and related equipment
• Installation of two (2) transition stations to enable wires to go from overhead towers to underground conduits at each end of the underground area; each station will be approximately three (3) acres in size, with an 8-foot perimeter wall with some equipment approximately 133 feet in height
• Installation of two (2) new lattice steel transmission structures, one adjacent to each transition station described above, to feed the overhead wires into the stations
• Use of large construction equipment, including cranes and drilling equipment
• Periods of temporary lane closures and traffic control on:
Chino Hills Parkway (between Carbon Canyon Road and Eucalyptus Avenue) and;
Pipeline Avenue (between Chino Hills Parkway and Eucalyptus Avenue)

Project Area:
From the western end of Eucalyptus Avenue, proceeding northeast (south of Eucalyptus Avenue to Peyton Drive, then east to the Chino Valley Freeway (SR71) at Pipeline Avenue. 
 
Tips for Minimizing Construction Impacts 
SCE is committed to minimizing any inconvenience and ensuring the safety of both the public and project personnel during this work. In addition to SCE and contractor efforts to minimize the impacts to residents and businesses during construction, here are some simple tips that may help you reduce construction disturbance:

  • Close windows and doors facing the construction area in order to reduce noise and dust
  • Watch for project information updates to ensure you have the most up-to-date information about construction activities taking place in your area.
