Construction in Zone 2 continues. This Zone 2 construction updates page will include construction activities that occur between South Avenue E. and Henry Street N. and County Road B and Prosperity Avenue.

During the week of Aug. 26, 2019, crews will work in the following areas:

  • South Avenue East (County Road B), between Century Avenue North and McKnight Road North. During construction in this area, no through traffic will be allowed, and commuters should use alternative routes. Local traffic to sites within the construction work area will be allowed during construction. Crews will work in this area through August 2019. 
  • South Avenue East (County Road B) and McKnight Road North to County Road B and White Bear Avenue. During construction in this area, no through traffic will be allowed, and commuters should use alternative routes. Local traffic to sites within the construction work area will be allowed during construction. Final road paving is expected to occur Monday, Aug. 26, 2019, and the road will be reopened for through traffic after being paved.

Once construction has been completed, we will restore the previous work sites to the conditions required by permits.

During construction, you can expect to see construction contractors in your area regularly. Prior to natural gas line work, you may also see contractors marking existing utilities and visually exposing them by potholing roadways and sidewalks to verify utility line locations. 

We will have traffic control set up during construction activities. Area commuters, pedestrians and cyclists should expect traffic flaggers, construction traffic and potential delays when navigating through or around the construction work areas. For your safety and the safety of the crews, please follow all posted detour signs and directions from construction personnel.

If you experience issues related to our construction, we want to hear from you. Please contact us directly at 833-676-4369 or via email at Info@XcelEnergyNEMetroGasProject.com. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience that construction may cause, and we thank you for your patience during the construction process.

Please note that construction schedules are subject to change.
