I grew up in the area and have been a Brooklyn Center resident for over 21 years. Brooklyn Center has been a great place to raise our kids. We've enjoy the mighty Mississippi so much! I am an engineer for a medical device company that makes devices that save people's lives. I use data and statistics to make life saving decisions. With 66th being the second most dangerous intersection, I as an engineer would find the root cause and put a robust solution in place.
The previous plan was going to build the interchange at 66th right in the same location as one of the most dangerous intersections in the state. The root cause is the proximity of the intersection to the major interchange. The interchange at 66th would also dump impaired drivers and high school students right into what some of us like to call the death zone. We do not want more families and friends to go through what we have had to.
