Project Status - Edina - Blake Road Belt Line Project

9/6/2019

Where, when, and why is CenterPoint Energy performing construction?

CenterPoint Energy will be replacing part of the natural gas Belt Line system in Edina for approximately one month beginning in early October 2019. Project construction will occur along Blake Road between Spruce Road and Waterman Avenue, in addition to Maloney Avenue just west of Blake Road.

This project is a continuation of CenterPoint Energy’s Belt Line project in Minnesota, which began in 2012 and will continue until approximately 2022. The Belt Line system is a series of natural gas distribution mains along routes from Brooklyn Center to Bloomington and from Golden Valley to Minneapolis.

What are the estimated traffic impacts?

  • Residents and local businesses will have access to their properties.
  • Construction will occur in segments along the construction route, rather than all at once. Lane restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring and are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe. If any closures are necessary, they will be minimized. More details will be added to this web page closer to the project’s start date.

  • CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, Q3 Contracting, will restore the areas affected by CenterPoint Energy’s construction—typically the boulevard, lawn, sidewalk and road.
