Entire work area: Periodic lane or shoulder closures on Hwy 10 and road connections through Fall 2019. Follow road signs and watch for work crews and heavy moving equipment.
Begins June 3
Hwy 10 lane closures
Both directions of Hwy 10: Single-lane closures with use of flaggers and a pilot car. Crews will work Mon-Sat, sunrise to sunset, on good weather days, June 3 to late-July. First, they will resurface the west end between Bluffton and 3rd St W in Wadena, then the east end between Harry Rich Dr and Oink Joint Rd.
Hwy 10/Otter Tail CR 75 intersection: Crews will widen the road and install new center left-turn lanes. Be prepared for lane shifts and flaggers controlling traffic in this area.
Late summer/early Fall 2019: Both directions of Hwy 10 will close between Wadena CR 4/Sunny Brook Rd and Harry Rich Dr in Wadena to replace underground drainage structures near Union Creek. Detour uses Harry Rich Dr and CR 4/Sunny Brook Rd. Project detour routes map, PDF.
Next year: All remaining work/detours, includes mainline reconstruction, to be done in 2020.
