February 22, 2016 - city council approves layout
The Brooklyn Park City Council approved the West Broadway Avenue (County Road 103) and 93rd Avenue (County Road 30) preliminary layout 3. This layout represents a design near 20 percent complete. County and City staff will continue to develop the design in greater detail, including ways to minimize impacts to nearby property owners.
The city council also approved the municipal consent plans for Metropolitan Council's Blue Line extension light rail transit (BLRT) project throughout the city including the West Broadway Avenue corridor. After completion of the environmental study for the BLRT project, the county will begin work related to right-of-way acquisition.
September 23, 2015 neighborhood meeting - Maplebrook Intersection
The future design of the West Broadway and Maplebrook Parkway/Maplebrook Terrace intersection was discussed at this neighborhood meeting. Based on feedback from the public and analysis of the intersection, Hennepin County is recommending a traffic signal be included as part of the reconstruction project at this location. We anticipate presenting this design element as part of the preliminary layout to the City Council for approval in January or February 2016.
