The Southern California Gas Co. will begin relocating a gas main from one side of Pacific Coast Highway to the other next week in Malibu.
The project will focus on a 200 to 300 foot stretch of an eight-inch diameter steel gas main in the Escondido Creek area along PCH, according to Denise King, a spokeswoman for SoCal Gas.
The line will be moved from the inland side to the beach side of PCH at the request of Caltrans, King said.
"Caltrans is constructing some pylons to shore up the side of the highway," she said.
Work will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday from Monday, Nov. 26 through Dec. 30. No lane closures are expected for that portion of the work, King said.
In mid-December, crews will work at night between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. to install the pipe across PCH.
"The highway will be reduced to two lanes. That work will be at night," King said.
