Le Center - Sharon Street Neighborhood

Scheduled Start Date: July 16, 2018

Project Description

Where, when, and why is CenterP​oint Energy performing construction?

Beginning on Monday, July 16, and ending in late September 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 Le Center along the following streets:

  • Park Avenue S. between Sharon Street and Derrynane Street (Highway 99)​​
  • Waterville Avenue S. between Sharon Street and Derrynane Street
  • Montgomery Avenue S. between Ottawa Street and Derrynane Street
  • Sharon Street between Lexington Avenue S. and Montgomery Avenue S.
  • Ottawa Street between Park Avenue S. and Sunrise Avenue S.
  • Lanesburgh Street between Park Avenue S. and Cordova Avenue S.
  • Derry​nane Street between Lexington Avenue S. and Cordova Avenue S.

What are the estimated traffic impa​​cts?

  • Residents and local businesses 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.
  • Crews from Q3 Contracting, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, will restore the areas affected by CenterPoint Energy’s construction—typically the utility easement, the street, and the customer’s yard.

How may the natural gas service line installations a​ffect 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.

What is CenterPoint Energy’s mission, and how can I contact CenterPoint Energy?

At CenterPoint Energy, we are committed to providing timely and relevant information to our customers and the general public to minimize inconvenience or disruption due to our construction activities. CNP has provided safe, clean and efficient natural gas service to Minnesota communities for more than 145 years. We are proud of this record and strive to improve it by educating the public about the benefits of natural gas at CenterPointEnergy.com/BeSafe.
