​​Minneapolis - Osseo Road and 49th Avenue N. 

Scheduled Start Date: June 25, 2018

Project Description

Where, when, and why is CenterP​oint Energy performing construction?
  • From Monday, June 25, to Saturday, June 30, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized 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. Please see our Map of Construction below.​
  • CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, Q3 Contracting, will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s construction from July 9 to 14, weather permitting. 

What are the estimated tra​ffic impacts?

  • To perform the work, Michels Corporation will close the eastern half of the intersection. While drivers can go north and south along Osseo Road, which leads into Brooklyn Boulevard, drivers can’t turn left or right onto eastbound 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.
  • Lane restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring and are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe.
