As Hwy 10 Anoka construction ramps up, additional lane restrictions begin April 4

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – As construction activity ramps up next week on Highway 10 in Anoka, motorists will encounter additional lane closures on Highway 10. Beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, April 4, construction crews will reduce traffic to a single lane in each direction on the highway between Seventh Avenue and Highway 47/Ferry Street as well as restrict access to some local roads and trails to begin work on the eastern portion of the Highway 10 Anoka project. With the lane restrictions already in place between Thurston Avenue and Highway 47/Ferry Street, the entire length of the project area will be a single lane in each direction until mid-November.

Crews will also close and detour the ramp from Seventh Avenue to westbound Highway 10. Drivers will detour east on Highway 10 to Round Lake Blvd and then use the ramps to reach the westbound highway. The Seventh Avenue ramp will remain closed through this fall. All other Seventh Avenue ramps will remain open although traffic will be shifted onto a temporary ramp and loop at the intersection.

In addition, Fourth Avenue and the Rum River Regional Trail that runs parallel to Fourth Avenue will close Monday morning between Pierce Street and Taylor Street to rebuild the Fourth Avenue bridge over Highway 10. Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists will detour on Pierce Street, Seventh Avenue and Harrison Street. The new bridge which will carry the trail, will open later this fall.

Hwy 10 weekend closure scheduled for April 8-11

Highway 10 will close in both directions the weekend of April 8-11 for demolition of the Fourth Avenue and Rum River Regional Trail bridges over the highway. The road will close from 10 p.m. Friday, April 8 until 5 a.m. Monday, April 11 between Highway 47/Ferry Street and 7th Avenue. Eastbound Hwy 10 drivers will detour on southbound Hwy 169 and eastbound Hwy 610. Westbound Hwy 10 drivers will detour on westbound Hwy 610, westbound I-94 and northbound Hwy 101. Nearby residents may experience some noise, lights and vibration as crews work 24 hours a day.

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

When possible, motorists should consider a different highway route that doesn’t go through Anoka and help keep the community safe by using posted detour routes and avoid cutting through neighborhoods.

MnDOT and the city of Anoka are working together to repair aging roads and bridges and build new interchanges on the highway between Thurston Avenue and Seventh Avenue in Anoka. The rebuilt road will improve traffic flow, decrease congestion and increase safety along and across Highway 10.

Construction is expected to be complete by the spring of 2024.
