UPDATE: Statement from CenterPoint Energy 

Morning Nov. 12, 2019

Last night, CenterPoint Energy experienced an interruption in gas pressure on our pipeline system in Shakopee. As a result, gas service was shut off to about 600 residential and business customers in the Shakopee downtown business district and some areas immediately to the north and south of downtown.

CenterPoint Energy crews worked overnight to identify and correct the problem. Since early this morning, technicians have been going to the affected homes and businesses to ensure that gas service is safely restored. These technicians are clearly identified as being with CenterPoint Energy. If the customer is not available, the technician will return several times and ultimately leave contact information for the customer to call to get service restored.

The goal is to have all service restored today. CenterPoint Energy apologizes for this inconvenience to our customers.

The city is currently developing approximately 30 acres of vacant property at the intersection of Scott County Highway 69 and U.S. Highway 169. The property will be utilized for commercial development and potentially a park. 

The city purchased the excess right-of-way from the Minnesota Department of Transportation in 2015, following the completion of the 69/169 bypass. The property was included in the city's 2015 West End Master Plan and Land Use study.
