St. Peter Natural Gas Project

Project Overview

We are replacing existing natural gas lines in St. Peter Street, between 4th and 11th streets west, in downtown St. Paul. The current natural gas line is located within the eastern portion of St. Peter Street and will be installed close to or in the same trench as the existing natural gas line.

As part of this infrastructure replacement project, natural gas line work will also occur within the following areas:

This natural gas infrastructure replacement project is part of our commitment to system revitalization and will ensure continued safe and reliable natural gas service. We will contract with Q3 Contracting to complete the construction activities.

Project Updates – October 2019

Project construction activities continue. Current construction work areas include:

West 10th Street, between St. Peter Street and Wabasha Street.

As we construct in this area, a full closure of West 10th Street between St. Peter and Wabasha streets will occur for natural gas line installation and roadway restoration. Sites along West 10th Street will remain accessible. Through traffic on Wabasha Street will be allowed, and lanes will continue to be restricted as construction continues east toward Cedar Street. Future work will cause a full closure of 10th Street between Wabasha and Cedar streets except for local access.
St. Peter Street, between West 4th and West 10th streets.
As we construct in this area, partial closures of St. Peter Street at the intersections of West 4th Street, West 7th Place and West 10th Street may occur. A single lane closure and street parking restrictions on St. Peter Street between West 4th Street and West 10th Street will occur. Through traffic on St. Peter Street will continue to use St. Peter Street, but please allow for extra time to navigate through the construction work areas. Sites will remain accessible.  

Please note that construction schedules are subject to change.

Project Schedule

Construction began in June 2019, with an expected project completion of October 2019.

Construction Overview

To complete this natural gas replacement project, we anticipate working during daytime hours Please note that these hours are subject to change in case of special circumstances or based on jurisdictional permitting requirements.

During construction, we will take measures to reduce disruptions to local businesses, residents and commuters. Potential disruptions from construction may include:

Once construction has been completed, we will restore sites to the condition required by permits.

During construction, we will update this website at least monthly with construction update information.


Public safety is at the foundation of all we do. The safety of the public around our natural gas system influences every decision we make. We take a proactive approach to public safety by implementing safety measures before, during and after construction.

The project has been designed to continue to meet federal and state standards and safety requirements for installing, maintaining and operating natural gas infrastructure.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
