Project Status - Edina - Limerick Drive Neighborhood
Where, when, and why is CenterPoint Energy performing construction?From May 17 to late July 2018, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, Michels Corporation, will be replacing natural gas mains and connecting natural gas service lines to the installed mains in Minneapolis along Doron Drive, Valley Lane, Doron Lane, Limerick Lane, Limerick Drive and Creek Drive. In addition, they will be boring natural gas main underneath Highway 62 at Valley Lane.
CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, Q3 Contracting, will temporarily restore the areas affected by CenterPoint Energy’s construction. Permanent restoration of the roads will be done by contractors from the City of Edina.
CenterPoint Energy’s work will be done in coordination with the City of Edina’s “Normandale Park D Neighborhood Reconstruction
” project. Both projects are adjacent to Minnesota Department of Transportation’s (MnDOT’s) “Highway 62 and Highway 212 – Eden Prairie and Edina
” project. For more information on each project, please visit its respective website.
What are the estimated traffic impacts?
- When the crews are crossing Highway 62, they will close one lane at a time. Highway 62 will not be fully closed.
- In the neighborhood within the project area that is south of Highway 62, residents will have access to their properties at all times.
- 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.
How may the natural gas service line installations affect customers?
As part of this main project, the crews will be replacing several natural gas service lines that connect from the main to the customer’s property. Customers will experience a short disruption of gas service as the crews are installing the gas service line.
Crews may have to dig in the ground on your property in the utility easement to complete the task of service and main distribution line replacement. If a customer’s property is disturbed, CNP will restore the hard and soft surfaces affected by construction at no cost to you.
