Hwy 10 and Ramsey County Road 96

  • Access to reach Welsch's Big Ten Tavern and Scherer Brother's Lumber changed on Thursday, Aug. 29. Motorists are now detoured to a single lane in each direction on eastbound Hwy 10 between County Road H and Prior Avenue until November. This move allows crews to complete the westbound Hwy 10 roadway between County Road 96 and I-35W.

  • The westbound Hwy 10 Diagonal is now closed between I-694 and I-35W, which includes the ramp from westbound Hwy 10 to northbound I-35W. Motorists can use the eastbound Hwy 10 detour route to County Road H to reach northbound I-35W.

  • The ramp from northbound I-35W to westbound County Road 10 will remain open although it will be restricted to a single lane. The ramp from southbound I-35W to eastbound Hwy 10 will remain closed.

  • Traffic will still be able to access southbound I-35W from westbound County Road 10 near the Mermaid Supper Club.

  • Prior Avenue at the north entrance into Arden Manor from eastbound Hwy 10 is now open.

  • Access for most residents on the west end of Lakeshore Place is from County Road 96. Access from the southern-most homes on the east end of Lakeshore Place will be maintained from Old Hwy 10 (County Road 76). Restrictions will remain in place through early September during construction of a retaining wall along Lakeshore Place.
  • Old Hwy 10 remains closed at Lake Valentine Road. Only local traffic is allowed to travel north of Lake Valentine Road.


  • Beginning Monday, Sept. 9 the ramp from westbound I-694 to Lexington Avenue will close for approximately one week. This closure will allow crews to work on overhead lights in the area. Motorists traveling along westbound I-694 should exit at Victoria Street and use County Road F or County Road E to access Lexington Avenue.
  • The westbound I-694 traffic switch has been rescheduled for next week. Motorists will experience a lane shift to the north side of the interstate. The shift will allow crews to complete storm sewer and barrier construction in the median of the interstate.

I-694 North Central West project between I-35W and Hwy 100

  • Traffic restrictions continue in both directions of I-694 between I-35W and Hwy 100 so crews can complete concrete pavement rehabilitation, bridge re-decking and drainage work.
