Bottineau Boulevard reopens to traffic
Bottineau Boulevard (County Road 81) between Brooklyn Boulevard (County Road 130/152) and 83rd Avenue is now open to traffic.
You can travel through the Bottineau Boulevard corridor without using any detours.
You can also take advantage of some of the new trails added along Bottineau Boulevard between 73rd and 79th avenues, as well as the shared paths along Brooklyn Boulevard just east of the Bottineau Boulevard intersection.
Be alert as work continues
Crews will be finishing minor roadway work and cleaning up and stabilizing the site for the winter.
As long as weather allows, they will also be constructing retaining walls and grading the remaining trail connection between 79th Avenue and 85th Avenue (County Road 109).
We will keep roadway disruptions to a minimum whenever possible. However, people should expect lane closures where crews are working.
For your safety and the safety of our crews, use caution and be alert as you drive, bike, walk or roll through the area.
What to expect in 2021
Because crews were able to complete a significant amount of work on Bottineau Boulevard this year, we anticipate next year's work will be less disruptive.
Crews will return in the spring to complete the remaining work that will include paving the final layer of asphalt, placing permanent roadway stripes and constructing the remaining trail connections up to 85th Avenue.
We are also continuing to coordinate with BNSF Railroad for their required railroad crossing work on Brooklyn Boulevard and other locations adjacent to Bottineau Boulevard.
