In the week of September 12, a crew from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will replace the natural gas main under the south boulevard of Muriel Road west of Plymouth Road as well as finishing up replacing the gas main under the west boulevard of April Lane from Preston Road to Plymouth Road.
The completion of Muriel Road will conclude the main crew’s work for this Minnetonka job.
Currently, another Michels Corporatin crew is connecting the service lines to the new main and moving inside meters outside on Preston Road and Saddlebrooke Circle, following the main crew’s route.
This week, a crew from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, has been replacing the natural gas main under the south boulevard of Preston Road between Stone Road and April Lane. Next week after Labor Day, the crew will replace the main under the west boulevard of April Lane from Preston Road to Plymouth Road, in addition to the cul-de-sacs of Stratton Circle and Saddlebrooke Circle.
Another Michels Corporation crew is connecting the service lines to the new mains and moving inside meters outside on Stone Road, following the main crew’s route.
In the week of August 22, a crew from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will begin replacing the natural gas main under the south boulevard of Sheffield Curve, the west boulevards Sheffield Circle North and South, the west boulevard of Crestwood Circle, and the east boulevard of Stone Road. They anticipate that the main replacement on these roads will take approximately two weeks. During this time, parking will be restricted on both sides in this area.
From Monday, August 15 into late fall 2022, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in Minnetonka along select streets west of Plymouth Road. While Michels Corporation will replace the natural gas mains, connect the natural gas service lines to the new mains, and move any inside meters outside, Q3 Contracting will restore the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work.
For most of the project’s duration, flaggers will be on site. The anticipated road closure will occur on Stone Road from Oakland Road to Preston Road. During this time, two-way traffic will remain open on Oakland Road. Through traffic will be detoured to Oakland Road, McGinty Road E., and Plymouth Road. Local access will remain open.
The customer will receive a CenterPoint Energy postcard in the mail typically within one or two weeks prior to the day when the Michels Corporation crews will perform the work. The crews will have CenterPoint Energy-authorized photo IDs stating that they are employees of Michels Corporation.
After the customer receives the postcard, the foreman will arrive at the customer’s house to schedule an appointment that typically meets with the customer’s schedule. If the customer isn’t home when they arrives, he will leave a door tag with his contact information to schedule an appointment with him.
Customers are advised to set aside a two- to four-hour time frame for the inside-to-outside gas meter move. They are also advised to mark their privately-installed utilities such as dog fences or sprinklers. Marking can be accomplished with tools such as spray paint or utility flags. The foreman will access the natural gas meter inside the house, move the meter outside, and relight the natural gas appliance pilot lights after the new meter has been relocated.
Customers with outside meters will be notified prior to the replacement or connection of the service lines to the new mains. Areas affected by our work will be restored to their original condition.
On the soft surfaces such as boulevards and lawns, various erosion control measures keep the restored area moist, hold seed in the soil, and enhance seed germination. If an erosion blanket is needed it is secured in place with staples. The mesh is a wood fiber that will completely degrade. Prior to mowing the restored area, remove any loose staples that secured the blanket.
