Watch a bird’s eye view of the first year’s progress of the Hwy 10 construction
On November 28, 2022, MnDOT did a drone flight over the Hwy 10 Anoka project. The drone was flown over Hwy 10 from 7th Ave. to Thurston Ave. and then north on Thurston Ave. Check out the progress that was made during the 2022 construction season.
All traffic impacts are tentative and weather dependent.
Hwy 10 through Anoka is open to two lanes of traffic in each direction through the winter months, but motorists should still be aware of some access changes that remain at Thurston Ave./Cutters Grove Ave. and at Fairoak Ave.
Cabin and vacation travelers who normally take Hwy 10 should consider using another route. Major work on I-94 is mostly complete between Maple Grove and Clearwater providing two to four lanes in each direction.

Bunker Lake Blvd. improvements in Ramsey between Armstrong Blvd. and Sunfish Lake Blvd.
About this project
MnDOT and the City of Anoka are working together to reconstruct and improve roads and bridges on Hwy 10 between Thurston Ave. and 7th Ave. through Anoka. When complete, the two-year Hwy 10 Anoka project will improve traffic flow, decrease traffic delays and increase safety.
Summary of work
Thurston Ave. intersection: Hwy 10 will be elevated to go over Thurston Ave. An interchange with a roundabout will replace the signal intersection. Drivers will have on/off access.
Fairoak Ave. intersection: An underpass will be constructed. Hwy 10 will be elevated above Fairoak Ave. Drivers will not have on/off access to Hwy 10 from Fairoak Ave.
Main St. intersection: Roundabouts will be constructed on the north and south side of Hwy 10 at the end of the ramps. Drivers will have on/off access.
West Main St. extension will be improved on the south side of Hwy 10, and will connect directly to Fairoak Ave.
Green Haven Pkwy. intersection: A roundabout will be constructed on the north side of Hwy 10 at the intersection of Green Haven Pkwy. and Thurston Ave. Drivers will have on/off access from Thurston Ave.
Verndale Ave. intersection: Access to Hwy 10 will permanently close and Verndale Ave. will become a cul-de-sac.
Hwy 47/Ferry St. intersection: Hwy 10 access to Hwy 47/Ferry St. will change. The current diamond interchange will be replaced with a Single Point Urban interchange and improved for less congestion. Drivers will have on/off access.
7th Ave.: Minor bridge repair work. Drivers will have on/off access at temporary ramps.
4th Ave.: Overpass will be updated and replaced. The Rum River Regional trail will be realigned from its current location and combined with the 4th Ave. bridge.
Safety and connectivity for people who walk, bike and roll: Major improvements throughout project area including addition of multiple sidewalks & trails.
For people who walk, bike and roll, the detour routes are long but unfortunately with the geographical challenges in the project area, it is difficult to find shorter routes. With every road closure, a safe detour for walking, biking and rolling is set up using the best route available
Frontage roads: Improvements on both sides of Hwy 10 with options for local trips & access to interchanges at Thurston Ave. & Main St.
Access lanes: New lanes to enter and exit Hwy 10 between Ferry St. and 7th Ave.
Minor repairs to the Hwy 10 bridge over BNSF railroad
