  • Road Construction Near CQ

    The exit to Brooklyn Blvd. from Northbound Highway 100 will be closed for "most of June" for the ongoing Brooklyn Blvd/C-Line Bus Rapid Transit construction project.  There are 2 alternate ways to get to CQ from Northbound Highway 100, & they're highlighted in blue on the map that's shown.  The first just loops you back south on Highway 100 at the next exit north (57th Ave N).  The second route uses the same exit, but directs you east to Humbolt Avenue, then south to 49th Ave N.

    Welcome to MN road construction season.
