Update as of August 4, 2021
Beginning in the morning of Monday, August 9 and lasting into the evening of August 9 or the business day of Tuesday, August 10, CenterPoint Energy will repair its natural gas main in Minneapolis along 27th St. W. During this time, partial closures will last at the following intersections along 27th St. W.: Dupont, Aldrich, Garfield, and Nicollet Avenues S. To repair the pipe, the crews need to shut off the natural gas service to your property during these two days. The crews from CenterPoint Energy will be on site 24/7 to repair and monitor the pipe.
Although the repair was planned for next year, a recent corrosion inspection warranted the work now. Crews have been in contact with the City of Minneapolis, Whittier Alliance, Whittier International Elementary School, and affected properties.
The shutdown will result in an outage of natural gas service to more than 200 meters. Within the group of meters, 123 are inside meters. Technicians will need to enter these properties to shut off meters before gas can be restored. As part of our COVID safety protocols, they will wear masks when entering customer homes. Once gas is restored, technicians will need to reenter affected properties to safely relight appliances.
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience. Please allow for any changes in our plan. For the safety of the employees, the street closures are necessary.
