Minneapolis – Washington Avenue S. and 5th Avenue S.
Scheduled Start Date: December 5, 2022
If you contact CenterPoint Energy for any questions, please reference the project’s name or the number 104676647.
From Monday, December 5 to Friday, December 16, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in Minneapolis on 5th Avenue S. from 3rd Street S. to Washington Avenue S. and on Washington Avenue S. and 3rd Street S. on one or both sides of 5th Avenue S. Michels Corporation will install a natural gas service main for a new apartment complex called O2 Market Rate Tower at 250 Portland Avenue.
Q3 Contracting will put down winter restoration on the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work. This includes temporary asphalt on areas that were previously concrete. In spring 2023, they will return for permanent restoration, including concrete on sidewalks.
During this time, traffic will remain open with one lane closed on each street. The sidewalks on the west even-numbered side of 5th Avenue S. and the north even-numbered side of 3rd Street S. will be closed, while the opposite sides will stay open. Bicyclists will share the road with vehicles in areas with lane closures.
Entrances into the parking ramps, lots, and driveways will remain open. Any exceptions will be minimized as much as possible if the crews need to perform work in these entrances. Over the weekend of Saturday, December 10 and Sunday, December 11, the crews will not work. Traffic control barriers will be temporarily removed from Washington Avenue S. but kept on the project’s other streets.
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work as efficiently as we can.
