What will CenterPoint Energy do?

Beginning May 17 and lasting into the summer of 2021, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in Minnetonka along the following streets:

  • Groveland School Road between Minnetonka Boulevard and Bay Lane
  • Beechwood Avenue, Charmy Downs, and Copperwood Lane
  • Grays Bay Boulevard between Bay Street and Beechwood Avenue
  • Bay Street, Bay Circle and Bay Lane

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. During this time, lane or parking closures may occur.

What is CenterPoint Energy’s COVID-19 policy?

According to the Governor of Minnesota’s order, gas main replacement is an essential work function. This allows for the modernization of related gas facilities. The gas main work requires excavations in various locations in the right-of-way (front yard) to facilitate the installation work.

As social distancing practices and proper use of PPE, face masks and gloves have become normalized and as customers are willing to allow properly protected personnel into their homes to complete required work to modernize gas facilities, which is essential work, CenterPoint Energy authorized contractors will enter customer homes to complete work only with customer permission.

The purpose of this letter is to advise that with customer permission, crews will now enter homes to complete necessary gas meter work. If you choose not to allow crews to enter your home, gas service will not be interrupted, and we will reschedule for a time better suited to concerns you may have. Crews will continue to replace service lines. Crews may have to dig in the ground on your property in the utility easement and next to your home to complete the task of service line replacement.
