Bloomington - Nicollet Avenue S.
Scheduled Start Date: December 1, 2016
What is CenterPoint Energy doing?
Crews from CenterPoint Energy will be performing repair work on the transmission pipe along Nicollet Avenue S. between W. 90th Street and W. 98th Street starting December 1 and ending December 6, which will include the restoration of the areas affected by construction.
This immediate repair work is required due to inspection activity performed in September and October of this year. It will include five areas of excavation along the following intersections on Nicollet Avenue S.: W. 90th Street, W. 92nd Street, W. 95th Street, W. 96th Street and W. 98th Street. Multiple crews will be working around the clock in order to meet the timeline noted above. In addition, the crews will be working simultaneously on all five excavations. (See "Map of Construction" below.)
What does this mean for residents and traffic?
Beginning December 1, the crews will place traffic control signs on Nicollet Avenue S. During the construction, both the northbound lanes will be closed. Traffic will be shifted to the southbound lanes and two-way traffic will be maintained. The crews expect to work the weekend of December 3 to 4 if necessary for the W. 98th Street intersection to complete the work as efficiently as possible.
CenterPoint Energy realizes that although the construction may be inconvenient to residents, businesses and customers along Nicollet Avenue S., we appreciate your patience as we work to make construction as efficient and convenient as possible.
