Michels Corporation will replace the natural gas main, connect the service lines to the new main, and move any inside customer residential meters outside. Q3 Contracting will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work. Traffic impacts:
No major road closures are expected for this job. Lane shifts and sidewalk closures will occur on the side of the street where active construction is occurring. Parking will be restricted on both sides of the street where active construction is occurring. These restrictions are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe. Local access will be maintained. Installing replacement gas mains:
According to the Governor of Minnesota’s order
, gas main replacement is an essential work function. This allows for the modernization of related gas facilities. The gas main work requires excavations in various locations in the right-of-way (front yard) to facilitate the installation work. Connecting service lines to the new mains:
As social distancing practices and proper use of PPE, face masks and gloves have become normalized and as customers are willing to allow properly protected personnel into their homes to complete required work to modernize gas facilities, which is essential work, CenterPoint Energy authorized contractors will enter customer homes to complete work only with customer permission.
The purpose of this flyer is to advise that with customer permission, crews will now enter homes to complete necessary gas meter work. If you choose not to allow crews to enter your home, gas service will not be interrupted, and we will reschedule for a time better suited to concerns you may have. Crews will continue to replace service lines. Crews may have to dig in the ground on your property in the utility easement and next to your home to complete the task of service line replacement.
