Weekend closure ahead for southbound Hwy 252 in Brooklyn Park, Brooklyn Center

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation will close southbound Highway 252 between Highway 610 in Brooklyn Park and Interstate 694 in Brooklyn Center this weekend from 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, until 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 28. At the same time, 66th Avenue will close at Highway 252.

The closure is needed so construction crews can make signal system modifications at the intersection of Highway 252 and 66th Avenue, remove the free right-turn from eastbound 66th Avenue to southbound Highway 252 in the southwest corner of the intersection and repave the roadway.

Although MnDOT and its partners are currently conducting a multi-year environmental review of Hwy 252 and I-94 between 4th St. North in Minneapolis and Hwy 610 in Brooklyn Park, the department is making some interim improvements to Highway 252 to improve the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.

For more information about the environmental review and current safety improvements, please visit the Highway 252 website.
