Update: Hwy 210 near Staples closes July 27

BAXTER, Minn. – Motorists who travel Highway 210 west of Staples will encounter a detour and delays as the Highway 210 bridge spanning Moran Creek, just east of County Road 9, is closed beginning Friday, July 27.

Motorists should follow the signed detour along Highway 10 and County Road 9, or plan their own alternate routes.

All lanes of Highway 210 west of Staples will open by Aug. 25.

The closure and detour are needed while crews replace the Highway 210 bridge spanning Moran Brook. When complete, the project will result in a new bridge with wider shoulders and improved guardrail. The project will preserve an important water crossing and improve safety.
