Edina - West 58th Street Reconstruction - Project Updates


Yesterday on Monday, March 30, crews from CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, Michels Corporation, began replacing the project’s natural gas main at Wooddale Avenue. The crews will close one block at a time, working east to Xerxes.
Work on natural gas service lines and meter work will be suspended into late spring or until further notice. 


Project Description: CenterPoint Energy’s project is anticipated to last from March 30 to the middle or end of summer 2020. Crews from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will replace natural gas mains and connect natural gas service lines to the new mains. Crews from Q3 Contracting, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work outside the limits of the City of Edina’s “West 58th Street Reconstruction” project.
Connecting service lines to the new mains: This may include service line replacement and relocating gas meters from inside the home to outside. (The timing of this phase depends on updates related to COVID-19.) Customers will experience a short disruption of gas service as the crews are installing the new 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.
Traffic impacts: On 58th Street West, crews from Michels Corporation will begin at Wooddale Avenue working east to Xerxes Avenue. Each block will be closed for approximately one week. Crews will accommodate local traffic and will notify residents if the crews need to cross the residents’ driveways. When the crews cross each intersection along 58th Street West, the interruptions to northbound and southbound traffic will be minimized. 
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. Local access will be maintained.
