Winnetka Water Main Replacement Contract

Winnetka Water Main Replacement Contract
Posted on 02/12/2020

At the Feb. 10 New Hope city council meeting, the City Council awarded the contract for replacement of the water main on Winnetka Avenue between 27th and 29th avenues to G.F. Jedlicki, Inc. for $339,906.00.

CenterPoint Energy will be replacing the gas main belt line on Winnetka Avenue between 27th and 42nd avenues in spring/summer of 2020. Storm and sanitary structures will be repaired or rebuilt where necessary on Winnetka. Staff plans to work with the city of Crystal on a joint project for the structure repairs. The water main located between 27th and 29th avenues is in deteriorating condition with a history of numerous water breaks. The ideal time to replace this section of the city’s water system is in conjunction with the upcoming CenterPoint project. The city can minimize cost spent on restoration due to CenterPoint planning to re-pave the entire east side of the Winnetka Avenue as part of the belt line replacement project.

Construction will begin in spring/summer of 2020, as weather allows, and is expected to be completed by late summer of this year.
