Hennepin/Lyndale Avenue Reconstruction Project
City Sanitary Sewer Project is Underway
Thanks for your patience as we work through some challenges (PDF) on the Hennepin/Lyndale sanitary sewer repair project. Unforeseen underground obstructions have caused delays and have resulted in a need to utilize different construction techniques to complete the work.
Ideally, the crew would be traveling 40-50 feet per day. Some days have been as low as 3 feet. The crew needs to travel 350 feet to complete Phase 1 (PDF). At this time, they will re-open the Groveland intersection and move on to Phase 2, which is another 400 feet.

- There will be no work Thursday and Friday this week. Happy Thanksgiving!
- Digging of the new pit between 510 Groveland and St. Mark’s continues, and should be completed by Monday or Tuesday of next week.
- CenterPoint Energy has a contractor (Michels) on site reconnecting gas main. This work will be complete by Wednesday/Thursday next week.
- By mid-week, crews will begin hand digging the remaining portion of Phase 1 from the new pit. This will require use of the vacuum truck, so some additional noise should be expected. Please report any concerns to email@example.com
- Another crew will be lining pipe in front of Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church, which will also be completed next week.
- The Groveland intersection is anticipated to be paved early the week of December 7th, and the intersection is anticipated to be open by December 9th. At this time the Oak Grove intersection will close, and Phase 2 will begin.
