Dupont Avenue (57th Avenue to 73rd Avenue) Reconstruction

Brooklyn Center, Minnesota

Dupont Avenue is a critical north-south link in the City of Brooklyn Center. This roadway is one of only a few routes that provide an overpass of Interstate 94 within the City, serving as a reliever to TH 252 for local traffic. The City of Brooklyn Center selected SRF to provide preliminary design, final design, public involvement, and construction management services for the reconstruction of Dupont Avenue from 57th Avenue to 73rd Avenue. The total project length was roughly two miles with approximately 140 residential properties, Brooklyn Center High School, Evergreen Middle School, and a fire station located along Dupont Avenue, requiring direct access to the roadway. The project was successfully completed while maintaining access to the residents, both schools and the fire station during construction. Water and sanitary services were maintained through extensive coordination with the contractor and affected residents. SRF provided construction services including contract administration, construction observation, construction staking, materials sampling and testing, and extensive public communications.
