In mid-June, beginning approximately the week of June 12 or 19, a crew from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will begin replacing a large-diameter steel gas main on Elliot Avenue S. between 36th and 39th Streets E. (CenterPoint Energy replaced a small-diameter plastic main last year in this area.) They anticipate that this main replacement will last for about six weeks. This will include installing a vault in the northeastern corner of Elliot Avenue S. and 39th Street E.

During this time, all three blocks will be closed to through traffic, which will be detoured to the next block over. The crews will work with residents on maintaining access.

Restoration will follow by Q3 Contracting, CenterPoint Energy’s other authorized contractor.
