What lanes will be closed on W. 70th Street?

- The right lane going westbound from almost the entrance to the Christ Presbyterian Church’s parking lot to the right-turn lane onto Normandale Road’s ramp toward Highway 100 will be closed, but drivers can still access Normandale Road going north from W. 70th Street.
- The right-turn lane onto Normandale Road will be closed but the left lane going west toward Highway 100 will be open.
- The left-turn lane from Normandale Road west of Highway 100 will also be closed.
The entrances to Christ Presbyterian Church’s parking lots will remain open.
What is CenterPoint Energy doing for construction?
Crews from MN Limited, an authorized contractor from CenterPoint Energy, will be upgrading 3,300 feet of 24-inch natural gas pipeline along the west side of Normandale Road (west of Highway 100) between W. 66th Street and W. 70th Street, and also along W. 70th Street (see Map of Construction for detail).
What will this mean for residents and businesses?
Construction is expected to begin approximately August 15, 2016, and will last until about September 23, 2016. During construction, the crews will be reducing traffic on Normandale Road to single lanes between W. 66th Street and W. 70th Street. No detour will be necessary, since there will be no total lane closures in this project. The areas disturbed by our construction activity will be restored in compliance with all federal, state and local regulations.
