Q: Could you please provide any information to which specific utilities will be relocating?

A: Hennepin County has requested the following utilities be removed or relocated prior to May 1st in preparation for construction activities:
- MCI/Verizon Communications - at Portland Avenue the utility at pier 1 will be shifted to midway between the south abutment and pier 1
- MCI/Verizon Communications - at Cedar Avenue the utility at pier 1 will be shifted to midway between the south abutment and pier 1
- Xcel Energy - at Portland Avenue, the pole at the NW corner of the bridge is to be temporarily relocated. The single secondary feed which crosses Portland north of the bridge will be removed for construction. The single neutral line may be dropped or taken out of service for periods of time to facilitate contractor operations (contractor to coordinate). The three primary feeds which cross Portland and the pole near the NE corner of the bridge need to remain. Line guards can be placed on the primary lines to increase visibility.
- Xcel Energy - at Cedar Avenue, the pole and light at the NE corner of the bridge will be removed. The pole at the SE corner will be removed. The secondary feed line which is supported by these poles will be taken out of service back to 29th Street.
