PG&E will be replacing gas lines at Riley Street and Blue Ravine Road over the weekend, causing road and lane closures near the intersection, Folsom police said.

The project will improve the distribution of natural gas and safety.

Blue Ravine Road will be closed between East Bidwell Street and Riley Street starting at 8 p.m. Friday through noon on Saturday. Northbound traffic will be detoured from Riley Street to Wales Drive to East Bidwell Street. Southbound traffic will be detoured up East Bidwell to Wales Street to Riley Street.

Traffic entering the Blue Ravine Oaks neighborhood will only be allowed access at Riley Street and Hazelmere Drive or Riley Street and Timson Drive.

Blue Ravine Road northbound lanes will remain closed from noon on Staruday until 6 a.m. Monday.

Message signs will be put up in the area to alert drivers of the closures. Flaggers will be out directing traffic.

Traffic delays are expected. The work may cause some noise disturbances.
