Bottineau Corridor Facts
Bottineau Corridor is home to a wealth of assets: a major hospital, two college campuses, a railway, two lakes, three creeks and a major regional park. Beyond its natural assets, the communities along the corridor make up a richly diverse population: from the dense urban areas of north Minneapolis to suburbs of Brooklyn Park and Maple Grove to the rural environment of Rogers.
Population growth and development in the northwestern suburbs have caused increases in traffic levels along County Road 81. High quality transit will strengthen the corridor's vitality by increasing mobility, critical to the area's commuter travel and effective movement of goods and services. Improved transit service will help reduce traffic congestion, fuel consumption and pollution, shorten commuting time and provide more travel choices for the area.
The Bottineau Transitway is being spearheaded in part by the Bottineau Boulevard Partnership, a public-private partnership created to help mobilize resources, align public policies and focus the marketplace on the new opportunities in the corridor.
