​Wayzata - Wayzata Boulevard

Scheduled Start Date: May 21, 2018

Project Description

When, where, and why is CenterPoint Energy performing construction?

  • Beginning on Monday, May 21, and ending in late July 2018, CenterPoint Energy’s contractor, Michels Corporation, will be replacing natural gas mains in Wayzata along Wayzata Boulevard between Central Avenue S. and Bushaway Road.
  • When the natural gas mains are installed, CenterPoint Energy’s other authorized contractor, Q3 Contracting, will perform temporary restoration on the hard surfaces affected by CenterPoint Energy’s work.
  • When Q3 Contracting is done with their work, crews from Hennepin County will come to perform the county’s mill and overlay project​. For more information on the county’s project, please visit its website.

What are the estimated traffic impa​cts?

  • Construction will begin at the east end of the project and progress west. It will ​occur in segments along the construction route, rather than all at once.
  • Two-way traffic will be maintained with one lane in each direction. Lane restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring and are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe.

How may the natural gas serv​ice line installations affect customers?

  • As part of this main project, the crews will be replacing several natural gas service lines that connect from the main to the customer’s property. Customers will experience a short disruption of gas service as the crews are installing the gas service line.
  • Crews may have to dig in the ground on your property in the utility easement to complete the task of service and main distribution line replacement. If a customer’s property is disturbed, CNP will restore the hard and soft surfaces affected by construction at no cost to you.
