Welcome to the City of Brooklyn Park’s website for the TH 169/101st Ave Interchange Preliminary Design Project (Phase 2). This site is the source for information related to the project and previous study, as well as public involvement activities. We encourage you to review the project materials and offer your comments, suggestions and input via email or phone.

The area of northwest Brooklyn Park is served by two major transportation corridors: TH 610 and TH 169, as well as a number of secondary supporting roadways. These, in addition to the proposed Bottineau LRT and the Rush Creek Regional Trail, form the area’s transportation framework and will serve to support strong projected growth that includes the Target North Campus, as well as development proposals for NorthPark, Gateway, and Astra Village.

The preliminary design phase of the TH 169/101st Avenue interchange is ongoing. Here’s what is new:

• The City of Brooklyn Park, in cooperation with its project partners, held the second open house for Phase II of the TH 169/101st Avenue Interchange Preliminary Design study on November 10th. A preliminary design layout and an Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) have been prepared. This open house served as an opportunity to review and provide input on the layout and EAW, as well as learn more about the next steps including the City of Brooklyn Park’s efforts to obtain funding for the project. This was an informal open house meeting, whereas no formal presentation.
A copy of the boards presented at the Open House can be found on our Documents and Maps page. Your comments are welcome throughout the study – please check out our Contacts page for how to get in touch.
• An Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) for the TH 169/101st Avenue Interchange Project has been prepared and is available for public review and comment from October 24 to November 23, 2016. Comments can be mailed, prior to the close of the public comment period, to Rick Dalton, MnDOT Environmental Coordinator, 1500 West County Road B2, Roseville, MN 55113. Comments may also be emailed to richard.dalton@state.mn.us.

• The City of Brooklyn Park recently submitted an application for funding the interchange as part of the Metropolitan Council’s Regional Solicitation process. The process allocates federal transportation funds to locally-initiated projects to meet regional transportation needs. Successful applications will be announced this winter.
