The following is a notice from SDG&E. For questions, visit the SDG&E project website or call their construction project hotline at 1-866-382-0886 during business hours. To receive email updates, sign up for the stakeholder email list at 1-866-382-0886.

As part of the Pomerado North Replacement Project in Poway and Rancho Bernardo, San Diego Gas and Electric Company (SDG&E) crews have trenched more than 3,000 feet along Pomerado Road at three locations between Ted Williams Parkway and Rancho Bernardo Road. Crews have also installed nearly 2,000 feet of new pipe along with state-of-the-art safety features. A second crew was added in early July to the stretch of Pomerado Road in the City of Poway (with three crews overall now) to accelerate the pipeline construction along Pomerado Road. Additional portable traffic signs have been added as requested by the City of Poway to alert motorists earlier to the construction.

Construction work zones for pipe installation will typically be approximately 1,000 feet long. On an average day, about 120 feet of pipe will be installed in the trench. The primary pipe installation portion of the project is expected to be completed by the end of November. Some additional testing and street restoration work will follow.

Reduced traffic lanes may be necessary along Pomerado Road as SDG&E works from south-to-north:

Location #1: Just north of Ted Williams Parkway to Roberto Way (City of Poway)

  • Time Frame:  July 9 – September 13        
  • Normal Workdays: Monday – Friday
  • Normal Hours*: 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Location #2: Monte Vista Road to Stone Canyon Road (City of Poway)

  • Time Frame:  July 12 – September 13
  • Normal Workdays: Monday – Friday
  • Normal Hours*: 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

  • Time Frame: July 9 – September 13       
  • Normal Workdays: Monday – Friday
  • Normal Hours*: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

*Subject to City approval, hours may be adjusted to facilitate safe and efficient construction and/or address community needs.   

Traffic control will be set up and flaggers present during these activities. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times. Residents and businesses along Pomerado Road will have ingress/egress access during this time.  Noise associated with this work will be minimized to the extent feasible. Every consideration will be made to ensure safety vehicles have immediate access and evacuation routes will remain open to all residents in the event of an emergency.  

The Pomerado North Replacement Project is one of 19 pipeline safety projects scheduled in San Diego. The next project, The “Pomerado South Replacement Project” is schedule to begin the first week of August in the City of Poway along Pomerado Road, between Ted Williams Parkway to Scripps Poway Parkway.
