Various agencies have studied and evaluated the needs of the Hwy 252/I-94 corridor in recent years, including:
- 2016 - City of Brooklyn Center’s Hwy 252 Corridor Study (PDF)
- 2017 - The Metropolitan Council’s Principal Arterial Intersection Conversion Study
- 2018 - MnDOT’s MnPASS System Study Phase 3 (for more information, contact Minnesota E-ZPass)
In addition, our partners at Hennepin County led an environmental assessment (EA) of the corridor in 2018 and 2019. This effort included three rounds of public engagement. We are using public and stakeholder feedback gathered during the early portion of the EA process to help us develop an environmental impact statement (EIS). This EIS will outline a potential project’s impact to the area surrounding Hwy 252 and I-94. Our team will continue engaging with the community and other stakeholders at each step in the EIS process.
*MnDOT and partners made the decision to change from an EA to an EIS due to the magnitude and complexity of the Hwy 252/I-94 corridor project.
