Crews from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, replaced the project’s natural gas mains and are connecting the natural gas service lines to the new mains. They completed the service line work on Red Oak Circle N. and S. In the following order, they will finish service line work on Red Oak Court S., Red Oak Court N. and the cul-de-sacs.


This week, the crews are beginning to replace the project’s natural gas mains. They are starting at Red Oak Circle S. and River Hills Drive, working their way to the loop from Red Oak Circle N. to River Hills Drive. After that, they will replace the mains on the cul-de-sacs from south to north, then River Hills Circle, then River Hills Drive.

Parking will be restricted on both sides of the road where the crews are working. Sidewalk closures will happen on one side of the road at a time.
