In 2022, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors worked in Minneapolis’s Fulton Neighborhood. While Michels Corporation replaced natural gas mains, connected service lines to the new mains, and moved inside meters outside, Q3 Contracting restored many of the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work.
Our natural gas line replacements and restoration work are at no cost to the resident. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we greatly appreciate your patience as we’re upgrading our natural gas lines.
In 2023, here is the following work to expect in the Fulton Neighborhood:
Restoration of last year’s work
In spring 2023, Q3 Contracting will return to the 2022 project areas and permanently restore the areas that received winter erosion control. Areas that received temporary asphalt will receive permanent concrete. On boulevards and lawns, crews will refill the areas with black dirt, grass seed, and netting made of wood fiber that degrades over about four months. Prior to mowing the restored area, remove any loose staples that secured the netting. For photo examples, please visit our Restoration Practices page
Every spring, Q3 Contracting restores the areas affected by gas line work that ended in the previous fall. Since crews will be restoring all the affected areas throughout CenterPoint Energy’s service territory in Minnesota, the anticipated timeline for all permanent restoration is between April and June, depending on weather.
Please note that with the snow that’s lasted into early April, Q3 Contracting will begin restoring in late April.
This spring 2023, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work on select intersections in the Fulton and Lynnhurst neighborhoods along 50th Street W. between Abbott and Lyndale Avenues S.
More natural gas line replacements
From Thursday, April 13 into late May, a crew from Michels Corporation plans to replace natural gas mains, replace service lines, and move inside meters outside. They will work along the following intersections. Please note that while some intersections will have only main work, others will have only service line and meter work:
Main replacements: Zenith, Washburn, Vincent, Upton, Queen, Oliver, Newton, Morgan, and Logan Avenues S.
Service line and meter work: between York and Washington Avenues S., between Queen and Penn Avenues S., between Fremont and Emerson Avenues S., between Colfax and Aldrich Avenues S.
During this time, expect lane, parking, and sidewalk closures on the side of the road where the crews are working. Some closures will alternate from each side of 50th Street W. at Logan Avenue S. and at the alley entrances between Queen and Penn on the north and south sides of 50th Street W.
Q3 Contracting will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work.
