Bottineau Boulevard in Brooklyn Park Reopens
Bottineau Boulevard, a major road in Brooklyn Park that’s been under construction for nearly five months, has finally reopened. Thursday afternoon, crews reopened County Road 81, also known as Bottineau Boulevard, between 71st Avenue and Brooklyn Boulevard.
The road had been closed since July.
Improvements include additional lanes, crosswalks, easier access to side streets and new traffic signals. Hennepin County officials say the improvements make the road safer for pedestrians, and reduces traffic congestion. Another segment of County Road 81 from Brooklyn Boulevard to 83rd Avenue will close for construction in the summer of 2020 and continue through the fall.
