Mankato - Belleview Ave and Woodshire Dr
Scheduled Start Date: October 26, 2020
Project description: Beginning on October 26, lasting into mid-November, and resuming in the spring of 2021, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in Mankato along the following streets: Belleview Ave., Woodshire Dr., Maple Ln., Jayro Ct. and Riverview St. While Michels Corporation will replace the natural gas mains and connect the natural gas service lines to the new mains, Q3 Contracting will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work.
When Michels Corporation replaces the natural gas lines, they will fully close the project’s streets except for Jayro Ct. and Riverview St. The crews will work with residents on maintaining access. The detour route will lead drivers to Swiss Street and Madison Avenue.
This year, if the weather isn’t conducive for permanent restoration, Q3 Contracting will temporarily restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work with winter erosion control. In 2021, these areas will be permanently restored. For examples of restoration, please visit our Restoration Practices
page. Connecting service lines to the new mains:
According to the State of Minnesota’s Cold Weather Rule
, the crews will make appointments with residents before connecting their service lines to the new mains between October 15 and April 15.
As social distancing practices and proper use of PPE, face masks and gloves have become normalized and as customers are willing to allow properly protected personnel into their homes to complete required work to modernize gas facilities, which is essential work, CenterPoint Energy authorized contractors will enter customer homes to complete work only with customer permission.
The purpose of this letter is to advise that with customer permission, crews will now enter homes to complete necessary gas meter work. If you choose not to allow crews to enter your home, gas service will not be interrupted, and we will reschedule for a time better suited to concerns you may have. Crews will continue to replace service lines. Crews may have to dig in the ground on your property in the utility easement and next to your home to complete the task of service line replacement.
