2020 Phase 4 West Historic District Project

May 22, 2020 Update: The City’s contractor, Geislinger & Sons, Inc. is planning to begin watermain installation on Oak Street and Neptune Street the week of May 26th. Please plan to use Pine Street to travel into and out of the neighborhood while this work is taking place. In general, the contractor will be working from the south end of the project to the north end. Most of Neptune Street, Pine Street, Oak Street and Quail Street properties are on a temporary water system until the new watermains are installed.   

Xcel’s contractor, Q3 is still on site completing gas replacement work. Their work is expected to continue on to the area north of Quail Street in the coming days.  

As a reminder, the fastest way to get answers to questions on the project is to contact James Collingsworth at the number below via call or text. James will be on site each day. If you don’t hear back from James please then call, email, or text Alex Miller.

May 18, 2020 Update:  As part of the current street reconstruction project, the City will be replacing your water service line from the main in the street to the curb stop near your property line. At one of the neighborhood meetings it was requested that the project team supply a list of licensed contractors who could be hired to replace the remainder of the water and/or sewer service lines to the house. Below you will find a list of the licensed sewer and water service line installers. It is the responsibility of the individual property owner to contact and hire the contractor they feel is appropriate. It is not a requirement that the service lines are replaced.  However, some owners thought it might be a good time to replace the entire line to their house now that the line is being replaced in the City right-of-way. The timing of the replacement, if you choose to do it, should be coordinated with the City’s contractor through the project field representative, James Collingsworth, at 612-219-8082.  Click here for a list of licensed contractors.
