Additional closures along Hwy 10 begin April 4

Construction activities are picking up on Hwy 10 in Anoka, and there are several traffic impacts in the week ahead. During the early morning hours this Friday and Saturday from 1:30 a.m. to 4 a.m., drivers will encounter periodic 15-minute full closures on Hwy 10 between Thurston Ave. and Hwy 47/Ferry St. so crews can remove overhead power lines. Next week, single lane reductions will be extended further east on Hwy 10. Drivers should also plan for additional closures to Hwy 10 access, several local road and trail closures, and a full closure of Hwy 10 in both directions for a weekend.

Hwy 10 lane reductions extend east on April 4

Beginning Mon, April 4, drivers will see the lane reductions on Hwy 10 extended further east to 7th Ave. Crews reduced travel lanes to one lane in each direction this week between Thurston Ave. and Hwy 47/Ferry St. Crews need the extended lane reduction to begin work on the east portion of Hwy 10 Anoka project. Hwy 10 will remain with one lane in each direction through November.

7th Avenue to westbound Hwy 10 ramp closes April 4

On Mon, April 4, crews will close the ramp from 7th Ave. to westbound Hwy 10. Drivers will be detoured to go eastbound on Hwy 10, exit at Round Lake Blvd. and use the ramp to westbound Hwy 10. The 7th Ave. ramp will remain closed through this fall.

All other 7th Ave. ramps will remain open. However, an added southbound 7th Ave. ramp to eastbound Hwy 10 will reduce backups: from southbound 7th Ave., drivers will turn right onto a temporary loop ramp. For drivers exiting westbound Hwy 10 to 7th Ave., the temporary ramp location will shift to the Pierce St. intersection.

4th Avenue road and trail closes April 4

Crews will be closing 4th Ave. in both directions between Pierce St. and Taylor St. on Mon, April 4, to reconstruct the 4th Ave. bridge over Hwy 10. The road will remain closed through this fall. Drivers will be detoured to use Pierce St., 7th Ave. and Harrison St.

Along with the 4th Ave. road closure, the Rum River Regional trail that runs parallel to 4th Ave. between Pierce St. and Harrison St. will also close on Mon, April 4. People walking, biking and rolling will be detoured to use Pierce St. and 7th Ave. The trail closure is needed to reconstruct the trail bridge over Hwy 10.

Hwy 10 weekend closure scheduled for April 8-11

Beginning 10 p.m. Fri, April 8, Hwy 10 will be closed in both directions between Hwy 47/Ferry St. and 7th Ave. until 5 a.m. Mon, April 11. Eastbound Hwy 10 drivers will be detoured to use southbound Hwy 169 and eastbound Hwy 610. Westbound Hwy 10 drivers will be detoured to use westbound Hwy 610, westbound I-94 and northbound Hwy 101.

During the weekend closure, crews will be demolishing the 4th Ave. road and trail bridges over Hwy 10. Residents in the area should be aware that crews will be working 24-hours a day during the weekend and may experience some noise, lights and vibrations.

All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather permitting and subject to change.

More about this project

MnDOT and the City of Anoka are working together to reconstruct and improve roads and bridges on Hwy 10 between Thurston Ave. and 7th Ave. through Anoka. When complete, the two-year Hwy 10 Anoka project will improve traffic flow, decrease traffic delays and increase safety. Construction is anticipated to be completed in spring 2024.

Drivers should plan for delays when travelling on Hwy 10.
