Service Area : Minnesota Change
To serve you better please select from the list of service areas below to see relevant CenterPoint Energy information.
CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors are making progress. Crews from Michels Corporation are finishing the project’s natural gas work. They replaced the project’s mains and are finishing the final connection of the service lines to the new mains, in addition to putting the existing mains out of service.
A crew from Q3 Contracting has begun restoring the areas affected by Michels Corporation’s work. 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.
We appreciate your patience and wish you a great fall season!
This week, a crew from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will continue replacing the natural gas main on northwest side of Wisconsin Avenue N., the southwest side of Zealand Avenue N., and the south side of 40th Avenue N. They anticipate that the main replacement on these roads will take approximately three weeks.
So far, they have replaced the main on 38th ½ Avenue N. They will be finishing up work on 37th Avenue N., the southern corner of Hopewood Avenue N. and Boone Avenue N., and the southern corner of 39th Avenue N. and Boone Avenue N.
This week, another Michels Corporation crew began connecting the natural gas service lines to the new mains, following closely behind the main crew. They began on 37th Avenue N. and will work on 38th Avenue N. next. They anticipate that all the project’s service line and meter work should be complete within 2.5 months.
All roads will remain open to residents but ask to avoid parking near intersections.
From Monday, September 12 into late fall 2022 or spring 2023, CenterPoint, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in New Hope along select streets between Boone and Winnetka Avenues N. and between 37th and 40th Avenues N. 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. Parking and sidewalk closures may occur.
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.
Michels Corporation plans to work on all the project’s mains, service lines, and meters this fall 2022. If Michels Corporation works in cold temperatures, Q3 Contracting will put down temporary restoration before returning in 2023 to permanently restore these areas. This may include asphalt on previously concrete surfaces and winter erosion control on boulevards and lawns. We appreciate your patience as we work as efficiently as we can.
