Freeway Blvd Mill and Overlay
Project Update
The City of Brooklyn Center's Capitol Improvement Plan identifies a street rehabilitation project on Freeway Boulevard between Xerxes Avenue and east to the Shingle Creek bridge. 

The City Council approved a resolution establishing this project in July 2016. A survey was mailed to all affected property owners regarding the infrastructure needs and issues in the neighborhood in May 2016. An informational meeting was then held in June 2016 to gain feedback from the property owners.

In June 2016, the City Council accepted the City Engineer's feasibility report, declared costs to be assessed and called for two public hearings on July 11, 2016. Property owners received a mailing which included a letter detailing the project and special assessment information together with the Notices of Public Hearing and Feasibility Summary. 
           
On July 11, 2016, public hearings were held regarding ordering improvements and authorizing preparation of plans and specifications, and acceptance of the levy roll certifying special assessments. Property owners are able to pay their assessments before September 30, 2016, without interest. From October 1 through November 23, 2016, property owners may pay the assessments with interest calculated from October 1, through the date of payment. Special Assessments not paid by the end of the business day on November 23, 2016, will then roll to Hennepin County property taxes and are payable over a ten (10) year period, beginning in 2017. 
           
At its meeting on September 12, 2016, the City Council awarded the project to C.S. McCrossan Inc. of Maple Grove, Minnesota.
