What will CenterPoint Energy do?

Beginning in the week of June 14 and lasting into the summer of 2021, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractors will work in Shorewood along the following roads: Idlewild Path from Rustic Way to Suburban Drive; 62nd Street W. from Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail to east of Church Road; Church Road just south of 62nd Street W.; the intersection of Brand Circle and Christmas Lane; Manor Road from to 19915 to 20425 Manor Road; Radisson Road from 21125 to 20465 Radisson Road; Shore Road just south of Radisson Road; and Grant Lorenz Road from Edgewood Road to Noble Road.

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 outside the limits of the City of Shorewood’s 2021 Mill and Overlay. The crews will work on one side of the road at a time. Parking will be restricted on the side of the road where the crews will work.

What are the traffic impacts?

The crews will work in the following order: Radisson Rd., Shore Rd., Brand Circle, 62nd St. W., Church Rd., Grant Lorenz Road, Idlewild Path, and Manor Road. For most of the project’s streets, flaggers will be placed to help direct traffic. The crews will close Grant Lorenz Rd., Cathcart Dr. at 62nd St. W., and Idlewild Path to through traffic at separate times. For the Grant Lorenz Rd. closure, detour signs will lead drivers to Edgewood Rd., Howards Point Rd., and Smithtown Rd. For the Cathcart Dr. closure, detour signs will lead drivers to Cathcart Dr., Smithtown Rd., Strawberry Ln., and 62nd St. W. Idlewild Path will be closed to through traffic.
