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 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.

Overview

During phase 1 a folded diamond interchange at 101st Avenue (Alternative #2) was identified as the recommended interchange alternative.

Phase 2 will further study and refine the folded diamond interchange at 101st Avenue (Alternative #2) and a preliminary design layout and environmental documentation will be developed.

Highway 252 corridor study

Start date

May 2017

End date

May 2018

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 Highway 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.

Interstate 94 improvements

Start date

Spring 2017

End date

2018

Overview

Mn DOT is making improvements to Interstate 94 between Nicollet Avenue is Minneapolis and Shingle Creek Parkway in Brooklyn Center. They will resurface 9 miles of the highway and repair 53 bridges.

Potential impacts

  • Impact local residents, motorist, transit users, bicyclists and pedestrians
  • Involves land restrictions and/or closures that will be announced as construction draws near
  • Requires entrance and exit ramps to be temporarily closed

Road closures near Brooklyn Park

These exits and roads will be close for about 2 months this summer. An exact starting date is yet to be determined

  • Southbound exit on Highway 252 to I-94
  • Westbound exit on I-694 to eastbound I-94

Detours

The designated detour is Highway 100 to I-394.

Expected benefits

  • Prolongs the life of the pavement of Interstate 94
  • Provides for a smoother road
  • Reduces wear and tear on vehicles
  • Reduces vehicles operating costs
  • Creates job opportunities as construction get underway
