Where, when, and why is C​enterPoint Energy performing construction?

From Monday, June 25, to Saturday, June 30, CenterPoint Energy’s contractor, Michels Corporation, will be replacing natural gas main to the installed mains in Minneapolis at the intersection of Osseo Road (also Brooklyn Boulevard) and 49th Avenue N.

  • Detour signs will be posted on site for eastbound 49th Avenue N., leading drivers along Osseo Road, 44th Avenue N. and Humboldt Avenue N.
