Final construction phase underway
Bottineau Boulevard between 79th and 83rd avenues closed
Crews are reconstructing Bottineau Boulevard (County Road 81) between 79th and 83rd avenues – the final segment of roadway for this project. Construction activities on this final segment will require a full closure of Bottineau Boulevard until late fall.
Bottineau Boulevard south of 79th Avenue remains closed
Bottineau Boulevard from Brooklyn Boulevard (County Road 130/152) to 79th Avenue will remain closed to traffic this summer to allow crews to complete necessary underground utility work and rebuild the road and trail in this segment.
Other construction activities in the area
Crews will continue the work they have been doing elsewhere in the corridor, including replacing underground utilities and rebuilding soils.
Crews will also re-stripe Bottineau Boulevard between Highway 169 and 85th Avenue (County Road 109), as well as construct a new trail connecting Lakeland and 85th avenues.
Use the detours in place
During the closure, people driving will need to use the following detours:
- Regional traffic should use Brooklyn Boulevard and Highway 169
- Local traffic will use Brooklyn Boulevard, West Broadway Avenue (County Road 103) and 85th Avenue
Using these marked detours will keep you from experiencing additional delays and getting frustrated. And it keeps the local streets safer for the individuals and families who live, work and play in the area.
Shown above, the reconstruction work area, as well as the detours for both regional and local traffic. See a larger view of this map.
Access to local destinations remains open
During this closure, we will maintain access via Jolly Lane and Lakeland Avenue to help people get to businesses and other destinations along Bottineau Boulevard and 79th Avenue.
It is important to follow posted speed limits, signs and stay alert in this area. Traffic changes, construction crews, equipment and work areas near the roadway can demand extra attention from road users.
