SoCal Gas Company


Southern California Gas Company

This project is the relocation of approximately 1,500’ of 36” gas pipeline. The project was located on Benson Ave. overpass of the 60-freeway in Chino, CA.

The project included coordinating with Caltrans, different cities and various property/commercial owners as the project progressed through the various stages (i.e., excavation, fabrication, boring under the freeway, installing the pipeline, backfilling, and final paving).

  • Location: Chino, CA
