MnDOT will identify future safety and access needs along the Hwy 10 corridor from 15th Ave. SE/7th St. SE in St. Cloud and Hwy 24 in Clear Lake, Sherburne County.

Survey results coming soon

The online survey for public feedback on the six concepts closed Jan. 12, 2023. The results and recommendations will be shared soon.

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.

This section of Hwy 10 is unique. There are commercial, industrial, and rural segments. It serves many different users including freight, commuters, local residents, recreational traffic, peds and bicyclists. Industries along the highway are seeing growth and development. The adjacent railroad presents challenges for improvements. Numerous side streets and driveways connect directly to the highway which are a source of safety concerns.

This provides options when the funding becomes available.

Public and stakeholder meetings conducted in April and May 2022 provided the engineers with valuable insight to guide their designs. Many public comments reinforced what was learned using technical traffic analysis but also provided new information as well.

Using this feedback and technical data, the engineers have narrowed the concepts down to six. Of those six there are:

  • Two low-cost options
  • Two medium-cost options
  • Two high-cost options

A public survey was held online Nov. 9, 2022 to Jan. 12, 2023. We asked the public to help us narrow down the concepts even further.

Survey results are being reviewed and compiled. Results will be posted to this website. The project team is coming up with a list of recommended options to investigate further.

Although the survey is officially closed, we still invite you to learn about the design options that are being considered.

At the end of this study, we will have a recommendation for each budget limit:

  • One low-cost option
  • One medium-cost option
  • One high-cost option

It is anticipated that when funding becomes available in the future, these options will become full-scale projects to be designed in detail and constructed. The timeframe for these projects are not yet known.
