Minneapolis 2019 Belt Line Project 

Scheduled Start Date: April 2019

Project Description

What is CenterPoint Energy doing for construction?

Where, when, and why is CenterPoint Energy performing construction?
In coordination with the City of Minneapolis, CenterPoint Energy will be replacing part of the natural gas Belt Line system in Minneapolis in 2019, beginning in April. Project construction will occur along the following streets:

  • Portland Avenue S. between E. 54th Street and E. 60th Street
  • E. 60th Street between Clinton Avenue S. and Portland Avenue S.
  • Columbus Avenue S. between E. 54th Street and E. 56th Street
  • E. 54th Street between Columbus Avenue S. and Portland Avenue S.
  • E. 55th Street between Portland Avenue S. and 14th Avenue S.
  • E. 56th Street between Portland Avenue S. and Chicago Avenue S. and within the E. 56th Street and Chicago Avenue S. intersection
  • 14th Avenue S. between E. 35th Street and E. 55th Street
  • E. 35th Street between 14th Avenue S. and 15th Avenue S.
  • 15th Avenue S. between E. 35th Street and Midtown Greenway

Lane restrictions will be anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring and are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe. If any closures are necessary, they will be minimized. Local access will be maintained. More details will be added to this web page closer to the project’s start date.

This project is a continuation of CenterPoint Energy’s Belt Line project in Minnesota, which began in 2012 and will continue until approximately 2022. The Belt Line system is a series of natural gas distribution mains along routes from Brooklyn Center to Bloomington and from Golden Valley to Minneapolis.
