What will CenterPoint Energy do?

From the week of May 24 to mid-summer 2021, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in Minnetonka along County Road 101 at the following streets: from Excelsior Boulevard to just north of Highway 7; at Bennett Family Park; and at Minnetonka Boulevard.

While Michels Corporation will replace the natural gas main, connect the natural gas service lines to the new main, and move any inside residential meters outside, Q3 Contracting will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work.

What are the traffic impacts?

For most of the project’s duration, lane, sidewalk and parking closures may occur. Below are the project’s traffic details that may occur in segments rather than all at once:

  • The crews will work in the frontage road on the west side of County Road 101 from Seven Hills Drive to Highway 7. Customers will be able to access the businesses west of County Road 101. CenterPoint Energy will coordinate with the local businesses.
  • The crews will close the right turn lane from northbound County Road 101 to eastbound Seven Hills Drive.
  • When the crews cross Highway 7 and County Road 101, the crews will close the turn lane from eastbound Highway 7 to southbound County Road 101. A detour route will lead drivers east on County Road 7, south on Interstate 494 and west on 62nd Street W. toward County Road 101.
