I-94/TH 252 Environmental Review Project

Start date

May 2017

End date

December 2024

Overview

The Highway 252/I-94 project is trying to improve safety and move people and goods reliably using varying modes (cars, trucks, transit, walking, biking, etc.) between Highway 610 on the north in Brooklyn Park and 4th Street on the south in Minneapolis. There are many corridor users who have varied ideas, interests, and goals for the corridor.

A variety of studies have evaluated the needs of this corridor leading up to today, including:

  • 2014 – 2016 Brooklyn Center TH 252 Corridor Study
  • 2017 Met Council Principal Arterial Intersection Conversion Study
  • 2018 MNDOT MnPASS System Study Phase 3
  • 2017 – 2020 Hennepin County Highway 252/1-94 Environmental Assessment

MnDOT and the Federal Highway Administration determined an EIS was needed for the project near the end of the Environmental Assessment process. Transitioning to an EIS will allow for further review and analysis of Transit facilities on the corridor and additional alternatives to be analyzed in greater detail.

Cost

Approximately $300-$400 million. Funded primarily by MnDOT and Hennepin County.
