​​​​Project Description​​​

What is CenterPoint Energy doing?

Crews from Michels Corporation, an authorized contractor for CenterPoint Energy, will begin construction on the new natural gas pipe along 68th Avenue N. (County Road 130) in Brooklyn Park approximately Tuesday, September 6. The construction is expected to take approximately six to eight weeks.

The crews are installing about 4,600 feet of natural gas distribution main along 68th Avenue N. (County Road 130) from Adair Avenue N. to just past Jersey Avenue N., and also along Jersey Avenue N. and Edgewood Avenue N. between 68th Avenue N. and Bethia Lane N. (See map below.) The crews will be starting on the west end of the project working their way eastward.

CenterPoint Energy will be boring the pipe underneath the soil’s surface. Existing gas service lines will be connected to the gas main. (A gas service line is a small pipe connecting the resident’s gas to the main line in the street.) Customers will experience a short disruption of gas service.​

What will this mean for residents?

Crews may have to dig in some residents’ properties in the utility easement to achieve this task. If a resident’s property is disturbed, CenterPoint Energy will be responsible for restoring the hard and soft surfaces affected by construction. This is at no cost to the customer or resident of the construction area.

CenterPoint Energy wants to thank you for your patience. For specific timeline on the construction area, please call our Information Hotline at 612-321-5369. For general construction questions about the project, please call our Communication Specialist, Hannah Gullickson, at 612-321-5546.
