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 existing pipeline was installed within the bridge casing and was planned to be installed by a horizontal directional bore (HDD) under the 60-freeway to limit the impact of the freeway. 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
  • Timeline: January 2020 to July 2020
  • Construction Methods: Horizontal Directional Bore
  • Customer: Southern California Gas Company




The San Clemente Project

The San Clemente project includes installing a complete new Traffic Signal system at Camino Vera Cruz & Costa, and a Traffic Signal Modification at Camino Vera Cruz & Calle Sarmentoso which includes new poles, and an upgraded cabinet modification. There are also 3 other existing locations that will have new Controller Cabinet modifications as well, installing the latest ITS Controllers, and new equipment with the latest communication technology to improve traffic flow.
