Project Description

What is CenterPoint Energy doing for construction?

Crews from CenterPoint Energy will begin replacing an existing natural gas pipeline in Minneapolis on Monday, September 25. Project construction is expected to be finished within the week of November 27, 2017. (Frequent updates will be posted on the "Project Status" link below.) Michels Corporation, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, will begin installing natural gas mains along E. 25th Street between 13th Avenue S. and 14th Avenue S. (See map below.)

What are the traffic plans?

  • ​Lane restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring. The lane restrictions are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe.
  • There will be periodic closures on E. 25th Street between 13th Avenue S. and 14th A​venue S. At alternate times, there will be periodic closures on either 13th Avenue S. or 14th Avenue S. 

  • During a closure, detour signs will be posted on site. The signs will be changed alternately to correspond with the above closures: E. 24th Street, Bloomington Avenue, E. 26th Street, 12th Avenue S. and Chicago Avenue.​

Construction will happen in two phases:

  • Phase 1 is installing the natural gas distribution main.
  • Phase 2 is restoring the areas affected by construction--typically the utility easement, the street, and the customer's yard.​
