Hwy 10 weekend closure in Anoka postponed due to threat of inclement weather
Weekend full closure rescheduled for April 29-May 2

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Due to the threat of storms, this weekend’s closure of Hwy 10 between Hwy 47/Ferry Street and 7th Avenue in Anoka has been postponed.

The closure is rescheduled from 10 p.m. on Fri., April 29 until 5 a.m. on Mon., May 2. MnDOT will close Hwy 10 in both directions between Hwy 47/Ferry Street and 7th Avenue to remove and replace water mains, sanitary and storm sewer utilities beneath the highway.

Drivers will be detoured on Hwy 610, Interstate 94 and Hwy 101. Nearby residents may experience some noise, lights and vibration as crews work 24-hours a day.

All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather permitting and subject to change.

When possible, motorists should consider a different Hwy route that doesn’t go through Anoka and help keep the community safe by using posted detour routes and avoid cutting through neighborhoods. Motorists should also consider using Metro Transit buses, Northstar commuter rail, carpooling, Park & Ride lots or telecommuting.

MnDOT and the city of Anoka are working together to repair aging roads and bridges and build new interchanges on the Hwy between Thurston Avenue and 7th Avenue in Anoka. The rebuilt road will improve traffic flow, decrease congestion and increase safety along and across Hwy 10.

Construction is expected to be complete by the spring of 2024.
