What is CenterPoint Energy doing for construction?

Crews from CenterPoint Energy will begin replacing an existing natural gas regulator station and natural gas main in Chaska the week of May 8, 2017. Project construction is expected to last until early July 2017. (Frequent updates will be posted on this Project Status page.) Michels Corporation, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, will begin installing the regulator station and gas main on the southern (eastbound) side of Crosstown Boulevard at the corner of Valleyview Road.

What are the traffic control plans?

This construction project will occur with intervals of active construction between May and July.

Whenever active construction is occurring, the crews will be working in the southern (eastbound) side of Crosstown Boulevard at the corner of Valleyview Road. Traffic will be shifted to the northern (westbound) lanes on Crosstown Boulevard. Two-way traffic on Crosstown Boulevard and Valleyview Road will still be maintained. There will be no detours or complete road closures. The lane restrictions are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe. 

Whenever there is no active construction, the crews will restore the areas affected by construction and remove the traffic barriers from Crosstown Boulevard. ​

Construction will happen in two phases:

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