Project Description:

On October 28, 2013 Michels Corporation, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, is scheduled to begin replacing approximately 2,600 feet of 10-inch steel natural gas distribution pipe with 6-inch pipe. The work is necessary to ensure the continued safety and reliability of the gas distribution system. Phase 1 (2013) will be at the Highway 55 corridor between Hwy 55 and Riverview Road (Frontage Rd) from the south side of 54th Street E extending south approximately 2,600 feet. Weather permitting, the project should be completed in five weeks. During construction, the bike trail maintained by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board will be temporarily closed and detoured for a two-week period.

Phase 2 of this project will start in 2014 as the new pipe is further extended to meet the increasing natural gas needs of the Minnesota Veteran’s Home.
