About the project
Hwy 610 is a four-lane, principal arterial roadway. The first segments of Hwy 610 were constructed in 1987 and between 1997 and 2001, which completed work between Hwy 10 and Hwy 169.
The remaining portion of the corridor has been split into two segments:
- The segment of Hwy 610 from Hwy 169 to County Road 81 was let in 2009 using state and federal funds that included funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Construction is substantially complete.
- The remaining segment, from County Road 81 to I-94, is currently in the Metro District’s 50-year plan. MnDOT is rescoping the project to reduce overall cost and develop a phased approach that would allow elements of the corridor to be constructed using portions of the overall funding needed.
When complete, the project will provide an important link between I-94 and I-35W in the northern Twin Cities Metro Area.
- Provide congestion relief for the I-694/I-94 corridor
- Reduce negative traffic impacts to the local roadway system
- Improve the economic vitality and development marketability of the northwest Twin Cities Metro Area
