On Thursday, March 25, crews from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, began replacing the project’s natural gas main. They are working west from 28th Avenue S. to Longfellow Avenue. On the project’s route, no parking signs are posted on both sides of 57th Street E and at each intersection just north and south of 57th Street E. The crews estimate that the natural gas work, which includes replacing the main and connecting the service lines to the new main, will take approximately six weeks.


CenterPoint Energy is working in coordination with the City of Minneapolis’s Street Resurfacing Program. CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, Q3 Contracting, will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work outside the limits of the city’s work.

Although 57th Street E. will remain open to drivers, sidewalk and parking closures will occur. From Longfellow to Standish Avenues, the crews will work under the south sidewalk and boulevard of 57th Street E. From Standish to 28th Avenues S., the crews will work under the north sidewalk and boulevard of 57th Street E. In areas of active construction, parking will be restricted on both sides of 57th Street E. and just north and south of 57th Street E. While one sidewalk will remain closed, the opposite will remain open. The crews anticipate removing a few sidewalk panels at a time to allow for the directional boring of the natural gas lines.

During this time, lane or parking closures may occur. More details will be added closer to the project’s start date.
