The second year of a major reconstruction project on Highway 10 in Anoka starts this weekend.
Crews will be demolishing the Ferry Street bridge over Highway 10, which means Highway 10 will be closed in both directions from 10 p.m. Friday, March 17 to 5 a.m. on Monday, March 20. The Ferry Street bridge also will close to traffic in both directions beginning at 9 p.m. Friday and then remain closed for reconstruction through fall 2023.
During the closure, motorists can follow the marked detour around Anoka on Highway 610, I-94 and Highway 101. Local traffic should follow the signed local detours to reach homes and businesses. After the weekend closure, Highway 10 will reopen with a single lane of traffic in each direction from Ferry Street to 7th Avenue through fall 2023 as work resumes for the season.
Ferry Street will remain closed at Highway 10 through fall 2023 as crews build the new bridge. While the bridge is closed, motorists should follow the signed detours, avoid cutting through neighborhoods and allow extra travel time. A list of local detours is available on the project website at mndot.gov/metro/projects/hwy10-anoka .
All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather permitting and subject to change. Any changes will be communicated by MnDOT as they are made.
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 7th 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.
