Bottineau Boulevard roadway reconstruction project

Start date

July 2016

End date

Fall 2017

Overview

Reconstructing Bottineau Boulevard between 63rd and West Broadway avenues. This is one of six segments of Bottineau Boulevard that are being reconstructed. Two segments were completed by the county previously. A separate segment was completed by MnDOT. The previous construction phases upgraded Bottineau Boulevard from Minneapolis to 65th Avenue. This segment is being constructed in coordination with the City of Brooklyn Park.

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

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

Noise barrier

In addition to these improvements, crews will also be constructing a noise wall barrier along the east side of Bottineau Boulevard from north of 63rd Avenue to Interstates 94/694.

Cost

Approximately $12 to 15 million.

Highway 252 corridor study

Start date

Fall 2016

End date

Fall 2017

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 will be leading and funding the study, but the other agencies and the public are expected to provide extensive input.

Cost

Funded by MnDOT and Hennepin County.

Current work

Hennepin County is currently in the process of identifying the content of the corridor study. Once the content of the study is finalized with input from the other agencies, the county will retain a consultant to conduct the study. 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, 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 Hwy 252 to freeway standards is warranted.

Brooklyn Center Study

The City of Brooklyn Center has recently 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 a City of Brooklyn Center council approved layout showing a new interchange at 66th Avenue and a pedestrian bridge at 70th Avenue.

The City of Brooklyn Center will be submitting these projects for Regional Solicitation funding this summer, and would desire to work with MnDOT on constructing these two projects in the 2020/2021 timeframe if additional funding is available.

The City of Brooklyn Center has 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.

Highway 610 extension

Start date

Fall 2014

End date

Fall 2016

Overview

Extension of Highway 610 from Highway 81 to I-94 with connections to and from West I-94. Also includes a new interchange at Maple Grove Parkway and bridging 105th Avenue over I-94. This project will not complete the work at the I-94/Highway 610 interchange as Highway 610 extension to Highway 30 and connections to and from East I-94 will still need to be provided in the future.

Cost

The current cost estimate to extend Highway 610 from Highway 81 to I-94 within Maple Grove is approximately $80 million in 2015 dollars. Funding to be provided by State's Corridors of Commerce Program.
