Road Construction Projects

109th Avenue reconstruction

Start date

Fall 2016

End date

To be determined, but sometime after 2020

Overview

Brooklyn Park and Champlin are working on the future reconstruction of 109th Avenue between Jefferson Highway and Winnetka Avenue. The reconstruction is not scheduled until sometime after 2020, however, concept plans need to be prepared within the next year to help guide decisions both cities need to make concerning area traffic and development. WSB was selected by both cities to provide engineering assistance on this project.

Bottineau Boulevard (County Road 81) roadway reconstruction

Start date

Spring 2019

End date

Fall 2020

Overview

The city and county are preparing design plans for reconstructing the segment of Bottineau Boulevard (County Road 81) between West Broadway Avenue and 83rd Avenue. This is one of six segments of Bottineau Boulevard that are being reconstructed. Four of the six segments are already complete. The previous construction phases upgraded Bottineau Boulevard from Minneapolis to West Broadway Avenue.

Improvements

Improvements along the corridor include:

  • Additional lanes
  • Safety measures
  • Better connections to side streets and frontage roads
  • Crosswalks
  • New traffic signal systems
  • Improved stormwater systems
  • Improved railroad crossings and protection

These improvements will make the road safer for all users, provide better traffic flow and reduce congestion and delays.

Cost

Approximately $20 to $25 million

Highway 252 corridor study

Start date

May 2017

End date

December 2019

Overview

The City of Brooklyn Park is working with the City of Brooklyn Center, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) and Hennepin County on a study that will determine the best locations and designs of future interchanges along Highway 252.

Hennepin County is leading the study, but the other agencies and the public are expected to provide extensive input.

Cost

Funded primarily by MnDOT and Hennepin County.

Current work

The scope of the study is currently being revised to include environmental documentation and the possibility of managed lanes potentially to downtown Minneapolis. The study process will include the analysis of at least eight possible interchange options, documentation of the expected impact on local roadways for each option, preparation of an environmental document and several opportunities for public involvement.

Reason for the study

There are currently six traffic signals along Highway 252:

  • 66th Avenue
  • 70th Avenue
  • 73rd Avenue
  • Brookdale Drive
  • Humboldt Avenue/81st Avenue
  • 85th Avenue

These intersections currently service the 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 14th and 18th highest volumes of all intersections within Minnesota, and have experienced some of the highest crash costs in the state. The 66th Avenue intersection has the 4th highest crash costs in Minnesota at $1.5 million per year, 85th Avenue has the 10th highest at $1.2 million per year, and 81st/Humboldt has the 32nd highest at $850,000 per year.

Due to current and forecasted congestion levels, as well as the severe safety issues at the intersections, the upgrading of Highway 252 to freeway standards is warranted.

Brooklyn Center Study

The City of Brooklyn Center completed a smaller version of a corridor study for Highway 252. This study focused primarily on the 66th Avenue and 70th Avenue intersections and resulted in their council approving a layout for a new interchange at 66th Avenue and a pedestrian bridge at 70th Avenue.

The City of Brooklyn Center also recommended improvements at 73rd Avenue and Brookdale Drive, but these measures have not been properly analyzed or approved by the other agencies at this point.

The Hennepin County led corridor study will follow a standard corridor analysis process and properly identify the best improvements at each of the six intersection locations.
