Open houses to gather input for future of Highway 252/Interstate 94 Corridors in Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Minneapolis

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — The Minnesota Department of Transportation, Hennepin County and the cities of Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park and Minneapolis are hosting three open house meetings in mid-December to share information and discuss proposed changes to Highway 252 and Interstate 94. The public is invited to attend any (or all) meetings. All three meetings are scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 11
    Evergreen Community School
    7020 Dupont Ave.
    Brooklyn Center
  • Wednesday, Dec. 12
    Brooklyn Park Community Activity Center
    5600 85th Ave. N.
    Brooklyn Park
  • Thursday, Dec. 13
    Folwell Recreation Center
    1615 North Dowling Ave.
    Minneapolis

The same information will be presented at all three open houses. Kid-friendly activities and hearty snacks will be provided. You are welcome to attend any (or all) meetings.

Proposals for the future of the two highways are being developed to address the future of Highway 252 and I-94 in Brooklyn Park, Brooklyn Center and western Minneapolis. An environmental review is underway to develop solutions to reduce congestion, improve safety and address reliability on the two highways.

Conversion to a freeway is being considered for Highway 252. The addition of MnPASS lanes is being considered for both Highway 252 and I-94. These changes would affect drivers, transit riders, pedestrians and bicyclists.

If you cannot attend any of the meetings, an online survey will be launched on the website following the first meeting on Dec. 11, 2018.

For more information about the Highway 252/I-94 study and to access the online survey after Dec. 11, please visit the study website. For other transportation information, please visit mndot.gov. For updated road condition information, call 511 or visit 511mn.org.
