Workers cut gas line to Hayward hair salon

Workers tearing out old sidewalks along Mission Boulevard in Hayward accidentally cut the gas line to Sue’s Cuts & Perms on Saturday morning.

That meant no hot water, and thus no shampoos or perms Saturday or Sunday. a serious hit for the shop. A electric heater was brought in so the haircuts could continue. Sue’s is at 24277 Mission, across the street from Memorial Park.

The sidewalks are being replaced along Mission in the stretch south of the Jackson-Foothill intersection as part of the Route 238 Improvement Corridor Project.

Drivers can expect slow traffic through the area the next few days as work continues.

    There was no mention of the company that was doing the demo which resulted in the gas line cut. This is not a careless accident. Either P G and E erred in their marking or the training and supervision of the crew at work was woefully inadequate. This should never have happened.
