Northeast Metro Natural Gas Project

Project Overview

Xcel Energy will replace approximately eight miles of natural gas infrastructure, for the Northeast Metro Natural Gas Project, in the communities of Maplewood, North Saint Paul, Roseville and Little Canada. This replacement project spans from Century Avenue N., south of Larpenteur Avenue, in Maplewood to County Road B and Rice Street, in Roseville. The natural gas line begins and ends at existing natural gas facilities at these locations.

This infrastructure replacement project will be constructed as part of Xcel Energy’s commitment to system revitalization, and allows Xcel Energy to continue to provide the safe, reliable natural gas service our customers expect.

Energy Saving Tip

Create your own shade by planting a tree in a strategic location in your yard to block sunlight from pouring into your windows. It doesn't get much more green than a tree!

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.
