Minneapolis - Lagoon Avenue and Lake Street
Scheduled Start Date: Early April 2020
Project Description: CenterPoint Energy’s project is anticipated to last from early April to late May 2020. Crews from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will replace natural gas mains and connect natural gas service lines to the new mains. Crews from Q3 Contracting, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work outside the limits of the city’s project.
What to expect: Crews from Michels Corporation will begin on Lagoon Avenue from Hennepin to Girard Avenues, and then from Girard Avenue across Lake Street. The crews anticipate that in early May, they will begin working on the pipe across Girard at Lake Street. This portion is expected to last for about two weeks.
Connecting service lines to the new mains: This may include service line replacement and relocating gas meters from inside the home to outside. Customers will experience a short disruption of gas service as the crews are installing the new gas service line. Crews may have to dig in the ground on your property in the utility easement to complete the task of service and main distribution line replacement.
Traffic impacts: Work will occur in segments rather than all at once. For a few business days early in the project’s duration, the crews anticipate closing one or more parking and driving lanes at Hennepin and Lagoon Avenues. They will maintain two-way traffic on Hennepin Avenue and one-way on Lagoon Avenue with no detours.
Lane and parking restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring and are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe. Local access will be maintained.
