Hwy 10 Big Lake to Clear Lake reduced to single lane beginning June 4

24/7 single lane each direction begins mid-July

St. Cloud, Minn. – Those who travel Highway 10 between Big Lake and Clear Lake will encounter delays after a major project to reconstruct eastbound Highway 10 begins Monday, June 4.

Beginning Monday, June 4, segments of Highway 10 will be intermittently reduced to single lane during daytime hours while crews conduct preparatory work.

In mid-July, the existing lanes of eastbound Highway 10 will close, and both directions of Highway 10 will become a single lane in each direction with head-to-head traffic on the existing westbound side of the roadway. Also, a temporary signal will be installed at Highway 10/Highway 25 in Becker.

All businesses along Highway 10 will remain accessible throughout the project.

All lanes of Highway 10 between Big Lake and Clear Lake are scheduled open by October 19, 2018.

The project will reconstruct eastbound Highway 10 between Clear Lake and Big Lake using full-depth reclamation, install a new Reduced Conflict Intersection at the Highway 10/County Road 23 intersection in Becker, extend turn lanes, repair underground pipes and other drainage infrastructure, and improve pedestrian safety and accessibility.

When complete, the project will provide a smoother ride with a long-life pavement along 14 miles of eastbound Highway 10, enhance traffic flow and safety at the Highway 10/County Road 23 intersection, improve drainage along the corridor and enhance pedestrian accessibility.
