HistoryThe city of Brooklyn Park, in coordination with the county, is leading a project to construct a temporary traffic signal and upgrade the pedestrian ramps at the West Broadway Avenue/Candlewood Drive intersection. Proposed Agreement PW 11-04-21 with the city stipulates that the county will participate in the construction cost and associated engineering fees, and will provide video detection cameras, traffic signal cabinet and related equipment for the project to integrate the new signal system with the county’s larger system.


The county cost participation will not exceed $100,000. After project completion, the county will assume ownership of the signal system while the city will assume maintenance responsibilities. The temporary traffic signal is anticipated to be constructed in 2021 and is planned to be replaced with a permanent system as part of the METRO Blue Line Extension (Bottineau Light Rail Transit Project).


Funding for the project is available in CP 2183500 – Cost Participation & Partnerships 2019-2023, with expenses tracked in its associated subproject CP 2183530 – (Coordinated Project) Brooklyn Park-led Candlewood Temporary Signal.
