Project Description

What is CenterPoint Energy doing for construction?

Crews from CenterPoint Energy will begin replacing an existing natural gas pipeline in Minneapolis on Monday, August 21, 2017. Project construction is expected to last into the week of October 2, 2017. (Frequent updates will be posted on the "Project Status" link below.) Michels Corporation, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, will begin installing natural gas mains at the intersection of W. 27th Street and Emerson Avenue S. (See map below.)

During active construction, the crews will close this intersection. Detour signs will lead drivers to W. 26th Street, Fremont Avenue S., W. 28th Street and Dupont Avenue S. The closure is necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe. 

Construction will happen in two phases:

  • Phase 1 is installing the natural gas distribution main.
  • Phase 2 is restoring the areas affected by construction--typically the utility easement, the street, and the customer's yard.​
