MnDOT schedules activation of new traffic signal at Highway 10 and Highway 9 for Sept. 26


DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—Motorists on Highway 10 and Highway 9 in Clay County will encounter a new traffic signal at the intersection beginning Monday afternoon, Sept. 26, replacing the two-way stop on Highway 9.


Other intersection improvements include a southbound free flow right turn lane on Highway 9 and a westbound acceleration lane on Highway 10.


The intersection work is part of a resurfacing and culvert replacement project on Highway 9 between the north Clay County line and Highway 10. Crews finished the resurfacing portion of the project last week.


The Minnesota Department of Transportation appreciates residents’ and motorists’ patience and cooperation during this construction project. This work will greatly improve safety and mobility along the Highway 9 and Highway 10 corridors.


MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones. For statewide travel information, visit, call 5-1-1 or log on to
