Construction is finished on the Crosstown Boulevard and N. Chestnut Street project in Chaska. The crews began installing natural gas pipeline on June 5 and finished in two weeks. The pipeline was installed at the corner of Crosstown Boulevard, N. Chestnut Street and Broadview Avenue. Areas affected by construction were restored by CenterPoint Energy’s contractor, Q3.


This project was a continuation of CenterPoint Energy’s project on Crosstown Boulevard and Valleyview Road​ in Chaska. That project started on May 8. The areas affected by construction were restored by crews from Q3.


CenterPoint Energy wants to thank the customers for their patience during the construction process.

What is CenterPoint Energy doing for construction?

Crews from CenterPoint Energy will begin replacing an existing natural gas pipeline in Chaska in the week of June 1, 2017. Project construction is expected to last for one to two weeks. (Updates will be posted on this Project Status web page.) Michels Corporation, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, will begin installing natural gas mains at the corner of Crosstown Boulevard, N. Chestnut Street and Broadview Avenue.

Lane restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring. The lane restrictions are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe.

Construction will happen in two phases:

  • Phase 1 is installing the natural gas distribution main.
  • Phase 2 is restoring the areas affected by construction--typically the utility easement, the street, and the customer's yard.
