Hwy 10—Elk River

Xenia Ave. to Lowell Ave., Sherburne County

Work begins April 19

Watch for reduced speeds, lane closures or lane shifts within the Hwy 10 work zone between Xenia Ave., south of the Lake Orono bridge, and Jackson Ave. Sign-up for Hwy 10 project email updates

  • Work: Crews will construct temporary crossovers to shift lanes of traffic, replace pipes below road, and widen areas of road.
  • Impacts: Expect periodic single-lane closures on both directions of Hwy 10 through early-May.
  • Traffic plans, schedule

Plan ahead: Eastbound will be one lane of traffic 24/7

The most important traffic impact to be aware of on this project is that eastbound Hwy 10 will be reduced to one lane of traffic, 24/7, between April 19 and early November. Plan your commute, especially on Sunday afternoon when recreational weekend travelers’ return home. Seek alternate routes or travel at off-peak hours.

Westbound will be open to two lanes, except at off-peak hours (usually at night between sunset and sunrise)
