MnDOT takes closer look at congested, crashprone stretches of Hwy. 252, I-94
October 4, 2021
Construction season is fast winding down for this year, but plans for future road construction and transit projects roll on.
This week we'll learn a bit more about the Minnesota Department of Transportation's plan to upgrade Hwy. 252 through Brooklyn Center and Brooklyn Park and Interstate 94 in north Minneapolis as the agency kicks off a series of virtual and in-person meetings.
MnDOT, along with local and federal project partners, is currently studying proposals to reduce congestion, improve safety and address reliability on Hwy. 252 between Hwy. 610 in Brooklyn Park and Interstate 694 in Brooklyn Center, and on I-94 from I-694 in Brooklyn Center to 4th Street in downtown Minneapolis. Both roads also are deteriorating and need to be repaired, MnDOT said.
