San Luis Obispo County is starting a project in Los Osos to construct underground wiring along Los Osos Valley Road between Oak Ridge Drive and Los Osos Creek.
The formation of an underground district will be performed in phases by Pacific Gas and Electric Co., AT&T Inc. and Charter Communications, with completion expected in the summer or fall of 2016.
The work entails removing above-ground utility poles, wires and associated overhead structures and subsequently placing underground wires and facilities for supplying electric, communication and cable television or similar services.
The project may lead to intermittent road delays in coming months.
Funding is being provided by the utility companies through tariff programs.
