What will CenterPoint Energy do?

Beginning in the week of June 21 and lasting into the summer of 2021, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in Golden Valley along the following roads:

  • Wayzata Boulevard between Hampshire and Florida Avenues S.
  • Florida Avenue S. just south of Laurel Avenue
  • Laurel Avenue between Jersey and Florida Avenues S.

Michels Corporation will replace two natural gas mains and connect the natural gas service lines to this new main. Q3 Contracting will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work. Although no full road closures are expected, lane and parking closures will occur. Two-way traffic will be maintained on the roads within the project’s routes.

The crews will begin work on Wayzata Boulevard and Laurel Avenue. Work on these streets is expected to last for approximately three weeks, including restoration. The work on Florida Avenue S. will begin on July 19 and last for approximately five weeks, including restoration.

What is CenterPoint Energy’s COVID-19 protocol?

The construction crews and personnel will continue to use the Covid-19 Customer Permission Flyer, which requests customer permission prior to entering homes. Personnel, contractors and CenterPoint Energy employees will continue to practice CDC guidelines regarding social distancing, sanitary practices and wearing face masks when entering customer homes.

What should I expect during restoration?

Crews from Q3 Contracting, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will follow to restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work, including hard and soft surfaces. On the soft surfaces such as boulevards and lawns, various erosion control measures keep the restored area moist, hold seed in the soil, and enhance seed germination. If an erosion blanket is needed it is secured in place with staples. The mesh is a wood fiber that will completely degrade. Prior to mowing the restored area, remove any loose staples that secured the blanket.
