Work Under Way On CenterPoint Belt Line Project
April 23, 2018
Work is under way on CenterPoint Energy’s Golden Valley Road 2018 Belt Line Project, which will replace an existing natural gas pipeline in Golden Valley. Expect lane restrictions and road closures.
Crews from an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor will install natural gas mains along the following roads:
- Golden Valley Rd from Winnetka Ave N to Theodore Wirth Golf Course
- Winnetka Ave N and Golden Valley Rd intersection
- Winnetka Ave N and 10th Ave intersection
- Rhode Island Ave N from 10th Ave to Golden Valley Rd
Work will occur in segments along the construction route, connecting segments that have already been replaced, in coordination with Hennepin County and the City of Golden Valley (see map of construction route).
Lane restrictions are anticipated in areas where active construction is occurring. Full road closures are also proposed for several locations. The lane restrictions and road closures are necessary to keep both the public and construction personnel safe.
Construction will happen in two phases. Phase 1 is installing the natural gas transmission main, and Phase 2 is restoring the areas affected by construction—typically the street right-of-way and street. Project completion is expected in the fall.
