Hwy 10 weekend closure in Anoka postponed again due to threat of inclement weather

Weekend full closure rescheduled for May 6-9

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – For the second weekend in a row, MnDOT has cancelled a full closure of Highway 10 between Highway 47/Ferry Street and 7th Avenue in Anoka.

If weather is more favorable next weekend, MnDOT will close both directions of Highway 10 between Highway 47/Ferry Street and 7th Avenue from 10 p.m. on Fri., May 6, until 5 a.m. on Mon., May 9, so construction crews can remove and replace water mains, sanitary sewer and storm sewer utilities beneath the highway near 4th Avenue.

Drivers will be detoured on Highway 610, Interstate 94 and Highway 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 highway 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 highway between Thurston Avenue and 7th Avenue in Anoka. The rebuilt road will improve traffic flow, decrease congestion and increase safety along and across Highway 10.

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