Reminder: Highway 10, Anoka weekend closure scheduled March 17-20

Ferry Street bridge at Highway 10 closed March 17 through fall

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The second year of Highway 10 construction in Anoka will kick off this evening as Highway 10 closes in both directions for demolition and removal of the Ferry Street bridge over the highway. The Minnesota Department of Transportation will reduce Highway 10 to a single lane beginning at 9 p.m. and then close the highway from 10 p.m. Friday, March 17 until 5 a.m. Monday, March 20 between 7th Avenue and Ferry Street. The Ferry Street bridge also will close to traffic in both directions beginning at 9 p.m. Friday and then remain closed for reconstruction through fall 2023. The following ramps also will close during the weekend to accommodate the Ferry St. bridge removal:

  • Ferry St. to eastbound Highway 10: Drivers will need to take eastbound Main St. to northbound 7th Ave. to access eastbound Highway 10.
  • 7th Ave. to westbound Highway 10: Drivers will need to take northbound 7th Ave. to westbound Bunker Lake Blvd. to southbound Sunfish Lake Blvd. NW to access westbound Highway 10.

The weekend closure will allow construction crews to demolish and remove the Ferry Street bridge crossing Highway 10. Crews will work 24-hours a day and nearby residents may experience some noise, lights and vibration.

During the closure, motorists can follow the marked detour around Anoka on Highway 610, I-94 and Highway 101. Local traffic should follow the signed local detours to reach homes and businesses.

After the weekend closure, Highway 10 will reopen with a single lane of traffic in each direction from Ferry Street to 7th Avenue through fall 2023 as work resumes for the season.

Ferry Street will remain closed at Highway 10 through fall 2023 as crews build the new bridge. While the bridge is closed, motorists should follow the signed detours, avoid cutting through neighborhoods and allow extra travel time. A list of local detours is available on the project website at mndot.gov/metro/projects/hwy10-anoka .

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

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.
