7/5/2017

Construction is finished on the Highway 41 and Pioneer Trail project in Chaska. Crews from CenterPoint Energy began replacing an existing natural gas regulator station and natural gas main on June 6, 2017. Project construction lasted for one month. Michels Corporation, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, installed the regulator station and gas main along the southbound shoulder of Highway 41 (N. Chestnut Street) south of Pioneer Trail (County Road 14) near Lake Grace. Then the crews also installed pipeline at the intersection of Highway 41 and Pioneer Trail.

Crews from Q3, an authorized contractor for CenterPoint Energy, are currently restoring the areas affected by construction. Restoration will be finished by Friday, July 7.​

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 on June 6, 2017. Project construction is expected to last for one month. (Frequent updates will be posted on this Project Status web page.) Michels Corporation, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, will begin installing the regulator station and gas main at the intersection of Highway 41 (N. Chestnut Street) and Pioneer Trail (County Road 14), in addition to the southbound curb side of Highway 41 south of Pioneer Trail near Lake Grace. ​

What are the traffic control plans?

  • ​For the construction happening along the southbound shoulder of Highway 41, the crews will not close any lanes or roads.
  • At the intersection of Highway 41 and Pioneer Trail, the crews will close the right-turn lane from Highway 41 going west to Pioneer Trail.
  • 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.
