How to Stay Updated During Construction


Brooklyn Boulevard Reconstruction 

Hennepin County and the City of Brooklyn Center will reconstruct a 1.4-mile stretch of Brooklyn Boulevard (County Road 152) from 49th Avenue North to Bass Lake Road (County Road 10) in Brooklyn Center. The Brooklyn Boulevard & 51st Avenue Station will be built as part of the Brooklyn Boulevard Reconstruction Project in 2018.


Brooklyn Center Transit Center and Ramp A/7th St Transit Center 

Metro Transit will make improvements to the Brooklyn Center Transit Center (BCTC) at the northern terminus of the C Line to ready the transit center for rapid bus service:

> Upgrading communications equipment for additional NexTrip real-time information screens

> Reconstructing portions of concrete bus lane panels for extended life and better ride quality

> Outfitting future C Line and D Line gates for off-board ticketing equipment, NexTrip real-time information signs and bus arrival annunciators.

Construction will also occur at the Ramp A/7th St Transit Center in 2018, and will include: 

> Upgrading communications equipment for additional NexTrip real-time information screens

> Outfitting the waiting area with off-board ticketing equipment, NexTrip real-time information signs and bus arrival annunciators.


Olson Memorial Highway Temporary Stations

When the C Line opens in 2019, it will serve temporary stations on Olson Memorial Highway. These temporary stations will be built in 2018 and will be affected during planned construction of the METRO Blue Line Extension. After the METRO Blue Line Extension opens for service on Olson Highway and C Line stations are built on Glenwood Avenue, the permanent alignment of the C Line will shift to Glenwood Avenue


8th Street Stations 

C Line stations on 8th Street will be built as part of the 8th Street Reconstruction Project in 2019-2020. During the reconstruction project, most bus stops on 8th Street will be closed. C Line buses will drop customers off at stops on 6th Street.
