LaSalle Ave Paving
Centerpoint Energy Construction Page

Project Type:
This is a paving project that will include removal and replacement of the pavement, some curb and gutter and driveway aprons.

Project Limits:
This project is located in downtown Minneapolis on LaSalle Ave between 8th St S and 12th St S and will be a reconstruction project. LaSalle Ave from 12th St to Grant Ave will be mill and overlay.

Construction Start Date:
The mill and overlay portion of this project (Grant to 12th) is currently scheduled to take place in 2014. 
The reconstruction portion of the project is scheduled for 2015.  However, there is an extensive amount of utility work that needs to take place prior to the reconstruction and will take place in 2014.  Minneapolis Water will install a new water main from 8th to 12th St. Xcel Energy will repair and/or rebuild manholes along the corridor and install new duct line between 9th and 11th St, along with duct line replacement on 9th St and 11th St.  CenterPoint Energy will replace their gas main on Lasalle between 10th and Grant, install new main on 11th, and will do service and maintenance work between 8th and 9th St. CenturyLink will rebuild a manhole and replace their duct line between 8th and 12th St.  NRG will rebuild one of their manholes and make repairs and replace some pipe between 8th and 10th St.  Additional work may be required to make sure all facilities are in good working order before the reconstruction project.

Duration of Construction:
For 2014, it is anticipated that the utility work will last through the construction season and into the winter of 2014-2015.  For 2015, the reconstruction project will take place during the construction season.

Traffic Impact:
There will be lane closures on Lasalle and cross streets.  It may become necessary to close Lasalle to through traffic at times.  Local access will be provided and individual property owners will be contacted.
