​​​​Long Lake and Orono - Wayzata Boulevard (CSAH 112)

Scheduled Start Date: May 21, 2018

Project Description

What will CenterPoint Energy do for constr​uction in 2018?

  • From May to October 2017, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, Michels Corporation, replaced natural gas main along Wayzata Boulevard (County Road 112) from Willow Drive N. to Wolf Pointe Trail in Long Lake. (To view the project’s past details, please visit this link.) This work was completed in coordination with Hennepin County’s “Wayzata Boulevard Reconstruction” project.
  • From May 21, 2018, to late July 2018, Michels Corporation will be replacing natural gas mains and natural gas service lines in Long Lake and Orono along the northern (westbound) boulevard of Wayzata Boulevard (CSAH 112) from Wolf Pointe Trail to Myrtlewood Road. (See the Map of Construction below.)
  • 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.
  • Further construction will be performed by Hennepin County for its “Wayzata Boulevard Reconstruction​​​​,” which began this April 2018. This construction is happening in partnership with the Cities of Long Lake and Orono. For more information on the county’s project, please visit the county’s website.

How may the natural gas service line inst​​allations affect customers?

  • As part of this main project, the crews will also 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, CenterPoint Energy will restore the hard and soft surfaces affected by construction at no cost to you.
