Brooklyn Center, in coordination with Hennepin County, is preparing for reconstruction and streetscape improvements on a 1.4-mile segment of Brooklyn Boulevard between 49th Avenue and Bass Lake Road (County Road 10).
The proposed reconstruction and streetscape improvements will improve roadway and intersection safety, enhance traffic operations and provide improved bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The project will enhance bicycle and pedestrian travel by adding a trail, improving sidewalks, transit stops, adding streetscaping and landscaping and improving the functionality of intersections with modified turn lanes.
The City completed the Brooklyn Boulevard Corridor Study in 2013 to guide the reconstruction and redevelopment of this corridor. This project consists of Project Nos. 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 6A and 7 as identified within the Brooklyn Boulevard Corridor Study. Note that Project No. 6 has been revised to be a full reconstruction rather than a mill and overlay.
Federal funding through the Surface Transportation Program has been awarded to the City and Hennepin County for this project and the regional Transportation Improvement Plan is expected to be amended to include this project. The local partnership and proportions are to be determined in the future but are anticipated to include Hennepin County, City of Minneapolis, Three Rivers Park District and City funding.
