Where, when, and why is CenterPoint Energy performing construction?

Beginning on Monday, April 16, and ending within June 2018, CenterPoint Energy’s contractor, Michels Corporation, will be replacing natural gas mains and connecting natural gas service lines to the installed mains in Brooklyn Center along the following streets:

  • 67th Avenue N. between Humboldt Avenue N. and 5th Street N.
  • 64th Avenue N. Humboldt Avenue N. and Bryant Avenue N.
  • Humboldt Avenue N. between 65th Avenue N. to Interstate 94
  • Girard Avenue N. between 65th Avenue N. to Interstate 94
  • Fremont Avenue N. between 65th Avenue N. to Interstate 94
  • Emerson Avenue N. between 69th Avenue N. and 67th Avenue N., and between 65th Avenue N. to Interstate 94
  • Colfax Avenue N. between 68th Avenue N. and 66th Avenue N., and between 65th Avenue N. to Interstate 94
  • Bryant Avenue N. between 67th Avenue N. Interstate 94
  • Camden Avenue N. between 68th Avenue N. and 67th Avenue N.
  • 5​th Street N. between 68th Avenue N. and 67th Avenue N.

What are the estimated traffic impa​cts?

  • Construction will begin on 67th Avenue N., 5th Street N., Camden Avenue N. and Humboldt Avenue N. during the week of April 16. During this week, there will be a one-day closure on Humboldt Avenue N. south of 65th Avenue N. Detour signs ​will be provided on site. The project will occur in segments along the construction route, rather than all at once.
  • Residents and businesses will have access to and from their properties and locations at all times. The crews will be on site to notify residents of when the crews will be on the residents’ streets.
  • Lane restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring and are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe.
  • Crews from Q3 Contracting, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, will restore the areas affected by CenterPoint Energy’s construction—typically the utility easement, the street, and the customer’s yard.​

How may construction affect customers?

As part of this main project, the crews will also be replacing several natural gas service lines that connect from the main to the customer's property. Customers will experience a short disruption of gas service as the crews are installing the gas service line. 

Crews may have to dig in the ground on your property in the utility easement to complete the task of service and main distribution line replacement. If a customer’s property is disturbed, CenterPoint Energy will restore the hard and soft surfaces affected by construction at no cost to you.
