Brooklyn Center - Humboldt Avenue N. 

Scheduled Start Date: Fall 2019

Project Description

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

  • For approximately two months within Fall 2019, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, Michels Corporation, will be replacing the natural gas main in Brooklyn Center along Humboldt Avenue N. between 63rd Lane and 65th Avenue N.
  • This project is following CenterPoint Energy’s “67th Avenue N. Neighborhood” project, which was done from April to June 2018, and the City of Brooklyn Center’s “Firehouse Park Area Improvements” project, which was finished in October 2018. For more information on these projects, please visit their respective websites.

What are the estimated traffic impacts?

  • There will be no full closures on this project. The crews will be working along the boulevard of Humboldt Avenue N. and underneath I-694 and I-94.
  • 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.
  • 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.
