Town Of Moraga

St. Mary's Road PG&E Pipeline Replacement Project

Town Council received a presentation from PG&E on their project to replace and upsize an existing vintage gas line on St. Mary's Road between S. Lucille Lane in Lafayette and Rheem Boulevard in Moraga. While PG&E originally proposed a 100-day construction schedule, requiring temporary, partial and full closures on St. Mary's Road, after hearing the concerns from Moraga and Lafayette staff and Councils, PG&E proposed an alternate condensed 60-day plan. View the presentation

The condensed construction schedule will enable the work to be completed over the summer break but would require full closures from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday - Saturday. Moraga and Lafayette’s Councils preferred the shorter and less impactful schedule, and urged PG&E to begin their outreach campaign immediately to include electronic signs, letters, phone calls, an open house, and canvassing of the highly impacted neighborhoods. Julian Lacson, from PG&E, is the point-of-contact for any questions and concerns and can be reached at 925-348-3532 or For those who did not attend the Council meeting, it is archived on Livestream if you want to learn more about the project.

PG&E will host an open house on Wednesday, May 30th from 7 to 9 p.m. at Claeys Lounge, Soda Activity Center, at St. Mary’s College, 1928 St. Mary’s Road. Residents and customers will have the chance to meet with Pacific Gas and Electric representatives to discuss the project.
