- If you contact CenterPoint Energy for any questions, please reference the project’s name or number 99113028.
What will CenterPoint Energy do?
From early November 2021 to spring 2023, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in Annandale along Poplar Avenue S. from Elm Street E. (Highway 55) to Park Street (Highway 24) and along Highway 24 from Poplar Avenue S. to 105th Street NW. While Michels Corporation will replace the natural gas mains, Q3 Contracting will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work.
This November 2021, Michels Corporation replaced the main on Poplar Street from Elm Street E. (Highway 55) to Park Street / Highway 24. In spring 2022, the project’s natural gas main replacements will resume. The main replacement crew will begin on Highway 24 from Poplar Street, working toward 105th Street NW. More information will be provided closer to that portion of the project’s start date.
This season, Q3 Contracting will put down winter erosion control on the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work. The hard surfaces will have temporary asphalt, including those that were previously concrete. In spring 2022, the crews will restore them to their original condition.
What should I expect for restoration?
On any excavations in boulevards and lawns, they will backfill with dirt and place netting over these areas. In spring 2022, they will return with black dirt and seed. If an erosion blanket is needed it is secured in place with staples. The mesh is a wood fiber that will completely degrade. Prior to mowing the restored area, remove any loose staples that secured the blanket.
