Highway 10



History of Hwy 10 at this location

Numerous studies and corridor planning efforts over the past several years have worked to engage with community stakeholders and develop a vision for the Hwy 10 corridor. These studies include the Hwy 10 Access Planning Study in 2014 and the Anoka Solution Plan in 2015. Copies of the studies are available on request, please contact us.

In 2022-2023, work will be taking place at multiple locations and intersections on Hwy 10 in Anoka. Construction information and traffic impacts from the Anoka Solution improvements on the west side of Anoka and the Rum River bridge replacement on the east side of Anoka are coordinated as the Hwy 10 Anoka project on this website.
