Bottineau Boulevard reconstruction

County Road 81 in Brooklyn Park

Hennepin County and the City of Brooklyn Park have partnered to reconstruct Bottineau Boulevard (County Road 81) between West Broadway and 83rd avenues.

Improvements along the corridor include additional lanes, better access and connection to side streets and frontage roads, crosswalks, new traffic signal systems and improved stormwater systems. These improvements will make the road safer for all users, provide better traffic flow and reduce congestion and delays.

  • For people driving, the road will include the addition of through lanes, dedicated turn lanes and traffic signal replacements.
  • For people walking, there will be sidewalk curb ramp replacements, accessible pedestrian signals and countdown timers.
  • For people biking, the Crystal Lake Regional Trail will be extended along Bottineau Boulevard and shared paths along Brooklyn Boulevard.
