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

CenterPoint Energy’s “Brooklyn Center – Brooklyn Boulevard” project will last from Monday, April 23, to mid or late June 2018. 

Crews from Michels Corporation, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor,​ will replace natural gas mains lines in Brooklyn Center along Brooklyn Boulevard Service Road between 53rd Avenue N. and 55th Avenue N. (Please see our Map of Construction and Detour Route​.)

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.

CenterPoint Energy’s work will be done in coordination with Hennepin County’s “Brooklyn Boulevard Reconstruction” project and the City of Brooklyn Center’s “Brooklyn Boulevard Corridor Project – Phase I.” Both of these projects are anticipated to begin in Spring 2018. For more information on the county’s and city’s projects, please visit their respective websites below:

What are the estimated traffic​​ impacts?​

Construction will occur in segments along the construction route, rather than all at once. Lane restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring and are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe.
