Brooklyn Park - Wyoming Avenue
Scheduled Start Date: Early August 2021
From early August to late fall 2021, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in Brooklyn Park on Wyoming Avenue N. from 85th to 93rd Avenues N. and on Winnetka Avenue N. from 93rd Avenue N. to W. Broadway Avenue. While Michels Corporation will replace two natural gas mains, Q3 Contracting will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work.
The first natural gas main is small-diameter plastic that is typically bored underground. The second main is large-diameter steel. Since the crews weld the pieces of the pipe together, the steel main replacement requires open excavation and takes longer to install than the small-diameter plastic main. Time spent on each block will vary due to the size of the block, the steel offsets, the restoration preparation, and the weather. Restoration will follow the steel main work.
Unless otherwise noted, the crews will maintain two-way traffic as they close lanes on the affected roads. Parking and sidewalk closures may occur. Flaggers may be on site to help direct traffic.
