Traffic Impacts

The crews will close one block of Humboldt Avenue S. at a time, beginning at 27th Street W. working south. The crews will work with residents on maintaining access. During each closure, one sidewalk will be open on Humboldt Avenue S. at a time.


Each closure is anticipated to last approximately one to two weeks. This will accommodate the main replacement and the road’s paving. During each closure, the crews will close one intersection at Humboldt Avenue S. at a time. Midtown Greenway will remain open. Detour routes will direct drivers to 26th, 27th or 28th Streets W. or to Lagoon Avenue respectively.

Project Description

Beginning on Monday, October 26 and lasting into the spring of 2021, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work on Humboldt Avenue S. between 27th Street W. and Midtown Greenway. While Michels Corporation will replace the natural gas main, Q3 Contracting will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work. This year, if the weather isn’t conducive for permanent restoration, Q3 Contracting will temporarily restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work with winter erosion control materials. In 2021, these areas will be permanently restored. This work will happen before the Metropolitan Council’s 2021 sewer project.
