The 2022–2023 study will analyze current and future demographics, land use, development, maintenance operations, road and drainage conditions, safety data, and public feedback to support recommended improvements.

Latest news

  • The Hwy 10 project team will draft possible solutions to improve the corridor from public input and engineering data received. In November 2022, the public will have an opportunity see the solutions and provide feedback. More details to come once scheduled.

Develop a safe, efficient, and accessible highway for all users with destinations along, across, or through Hwy 10 between Hwy 24 and 15th Ave SE.

  1. Improve safety for all users of Hwy 10, which has an ongoing history of high severity vehicle crashes and many risk factors for both motorized and non-motorized users.
  2. Reduce overall delay for all users on Hwy 10, who currently experience excessive delay at the Hwy 24 and 15th Ave SE intersections and significant delay for side road users entering, crossing, or turning left off Hwy 10.
  3. Modernize access along and across the corridor to industrial, commercial, agricultural, institutional, and residential properties for all users and vehicle types
