Hwy. 10 Construction Begins in Anoka

Highway 10 in Anoka was reduced to one lane in each direction on Monday eastbound from Sunfish Lake Boulevard in Ramsey all the way to Highway 47/Ferry Street. You can expect single lane traffic all summer and into the fall.

"It is going to be congested and there are going to be delays," said Kent Barnard, a spokesman for the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The first part of the project will be to build new interchanges at Fairoak Avenue and Thurston Avenue. Crews will be closing Thurston Avenue on March 29. The road will stay closed through mid-summer. Local access to the Highway 10 Service Road will remain open. Also on March 29, crews will close the median at Fairoak Avenue. The closure is needed to install temporary retaining walls for a bridge to be constructed over Highway 10 at Fairoak Avenue.

"We've got some weekend closures that'll be coming up,” Barnard said. “People are going to have to watch for that and we will be detouring traffic."

Starting on April 4, crews will start work on the Rum River Bridge. The bridge will be torn down and re-built about two feet higher to allow for taller marine traffic on the river. MnDOT reminds drivers that all construction activities are weather dependent and subject to change.

"If you don't have to come up here and don't have to drive through Anoka, we're suggesting you stay out of the area and maybe use Highway 610, Interstate 94 or some other route to get out of here,” Barnard said.
