Edina - Josephine Avenue and 64th Street W. 2020 Belt Line Project
Scheduled Start Date: Early May 2020
Project description: From early May to the end of summer 2020, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, Minnesota Limited, will perform work on CenterPoint Energy’s natural gas main in Edina along the following roads in the following order:
- Normandale Road from 69th to 66th Streets W.
- Josephine Avenue from 66th to 64th Streets W.
- 64th Street W. from Josephine to Holborn Avenues.
Crews from Q3 Contracting, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will restore the areas affected by Minnesota Limited’s work. Overhanging trees along the project corridor will be trimmed in April prior to the steel gas main replacement project. With this project, no CenterPoint Energy employee or a CenterPoint Energy contractor will be entering homes.
Virtual meeting: On Wednesday, April 15, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., CenterPoint Energy and the City of Edina will be hosting a virtual WebEx meeting to answer questions about the project. You can join via your phone and/or your computer up to 10 minutes before the meeting:
- To join via your phone, call US Toll +1-415-655-0002 or US Toll free +1-855-797-9485. Press the attendee access code 296 794 681, followed by #.
Traffic impacts: Work will occur in segments rather than all at once. One or two blocks will be closed at a time for a few weeks at a time. When the crews cross an intersection, each crossing will take approx. a few business days. More details will be added to CenterPoint Energy’s website closer to the project’s timeline. Lane and parking restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring and are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe.
How can I access my home? Local access will be maintained. When the crews need to cross a resident’s driveway, the resident will be notified by the project’s foreman or inspector. Garbage and mail services will be able to access the resident’s home.
This project is happening concurrently with CenterPoint Energy’s Normandale Park Area
project, which is anticipated to last from March 30 to late summer or early fall 2020.
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.
