Brooklyn Center, in coordination with Hennepin County, is preparing for reconstruction and streetscape improvements on a one mile segment of Brooklyn Boulevard between Bass Lake Road (County Road 10) and Interstate 94.
The proposed street reconstruction and streetscape improvements will improve roadway safety, enhance traffic operations, reduce access points 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 and access control throughout the corridor.
The City completed the Brooklyn Boulevard Corridor Study in 2013 to guide reconstruction and redevelopment of this corridor. This project consists of Project Nos. 8, 9, and 10 from the Corridor Study.
Federal funding through Surface Transportation Program has been awarded to the City and Hennepin County for this project, and the remaining project costs are to be funded from local funding as part of the required cost share.
