New signal begins operating on Highway 10 in Hawley
DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — A new traffic signal is now operating on Highway 10 in Hawley, according to Clay County and the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The signal at Highway 10 and County Road 31/County Road 33 is part of this summer’s intersection modification project. Clay County re-aligned County Road 31 and County Road 33 within Hawley. The project included several safety modifications to the intersection of Highway 10 and County Road 31/33.
The modified Highway 10 median crossings at Eighth Street and Michael Street will open in early September after striping is completed.
When they reopen, motorists will only be allowed to make right turns onto Highway 10 from Eighth Street or Michael Street. Left turns will still be allowed from Highway 10 onto Eighth Street and Michael Street.
The project will improve safety along Highway 10, County Road 31 and County Road 33 in Hawley.
