Xcel Energy Gas Main Project

Xcel Energy Gas work in downtown North St. Paul to begin October 15, 2018

Xcel Energy Gas will soon be doing extensive work at the intersections of Seppala Blvd and Margaret St N as well as 7th Ave and Margaret St N. The work at these intersections will begin on October 15th and will be completed by November 5thLetter to Gas Customers.

The project will involve shutting down the intersection of Seppala Blvd and Margaret St N. Seppala Blvd will become a two-lane road between Margaret St N and Helen St N, with a turnaround point being the public parking lot on Seppala Blvd. View detailed map of a Traffic Control Plan.

During this project the crews will be working Monday through Friday, during normal business hours, as well as Saturday from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

Please note: Xcel Energy is in coordination with Metro Transit for affected Route 64. Metro Transit will post temporary alternate stops.  It is anticipated that Metro Transit will use Centennial as an alternate route to Margaret during the closure.
