Bottineau and Brooklyn boulevards intersection closed
Reconstruction work underway
On March 23, crews began reconstruction of the Bottineau Boulevard (County Road 81) and Brooklyn Boulevard (County Road 130/152) intersection, which includes:
- Bottineau Boulevard between south of Brooklyn Boulevard and 79th Avenue
- Brooklyn Boulevard between Xylon Avenue and east of Jolly Lane
Crews are also working on minor projects at 73rd and Lakeland avenues. The road will remain open in these areas, but people can expect lane shifts or road condition changes.
The intersection closure will remain in place until crews are ready to move on to the next phase of work, which is expected to happen this summer.
How to get around the closure
While the intersection is closed, there are marked local and regional detours for people to get around the closure. The detours are as follows:
- Regional traffic should use I-694 and Highway 169
- Local traffic will use West Broadway Avenue (County Road 103/130) and 85th Avenue (County Road 109)
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 and work in the area. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Access to local destinations
In order to help people access businesses along Brooklyn Boulevard, Jolly Lane and Xylon Avenue, the project is keeping some access on Brooklyn Boulevard. People should expect access and road condition changes, as well as intermittent closures, in the area.
Allow yourself extra time to travel in this area during construction.
