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. We anticipate completing construction in this area in October 2019.

Crews will work in the following areas this week:

  • South Avenue East (County Road B), between Henry Street North and McKnight Road North.┬áDuring construction in this area, through traffic restrictions will occur, and commuters should use alternative routes. Local traffic to sites within the construction work area will be allowed during construction. Final paving will occur in the coming weeks.
  • County Road B, between White Bear Avenue and Prosperity Road. 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 remain accessible.

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.
