Highway 10 intersection project in Hawley shifts July 29

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists on Highway 10 in Hawley will re-gain access to County Road 31 and County Road 33 on Monday, July 29, weather permitting. Lane closures will continue through this area.

Crews will fully open County Road 33 to the north. County Road 31 will re-open to traffic within Hawley but will remain closed south of the city. Temporary stop signs will be placed at the intersection until the new traffic signals can be installed in approximately two weeks. The intersection closed in May for the realignment project.

Also on July 29, crews will close the Highway 10 median crossings at both Eighth Street and Michael Street for construction. The intersections will be permanently modified with safety improvements. During median work, traffic on Highway 10 will use the outside lane only.

When this portion of the project is complete, left turns will no longer be allowed onto Highway 10 from Eighth Street or Michael Street. In addition, traffic will no longer be allowed to cross Highway 10 at these two intersections. Left turns will be allowed from Highway 10.

The speed limit in the construction zone is 40 mph.

All work is expected to be complete by the end of September, weather permitting.

The project will improve safety along Highway 10, County Road 31 and County Road 33 in Hawley.
