Temporary Closure to Portions of Magnolia Avenue – July 16-17, 2020

Wednesday, July 8th, 2020 - Posted in All District News District Communications

On Thursday, July 16 and Friday, July 17 PG&E will be working on the permanent power supply for Piedmont High School’s new STEAM building.  Magnolia Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Hillside and Highland Avenues on those days from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm  to promote safety at the work site.   If the work finishes early, the street will be reopened to through traffic before 5:00 pm.  Nonetheless, members of the community should plan an alternative route during these work hours.  

During this work, PG&E may temporarily turn off power to a small number of households near the work site.  PG&E has identified and contacted those households of the possible interruption in power.
