Highway 10 and 23 interchange construction begins April 17 in St. Cloud
ST. CLOUD, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation, in partnership with the city of St. Cloud and Benton County, is excited to announce that construction will begin on a two-year, $43.7 million, interchange project on Highway 10 and Highway 23 in east St. Cloud on Monday, April 17.
Crews will reconstruct bridges, road surfaces and accesses at the interchange; update traffic signals, curb and gutter, underground pipes and city utilities; construct a new Fourth Street SE bridge over Highway 10; and install safer pedestrian and bicyclist crossings and trails.
Landwehr Construction, St. Cloud, is the prime contractor and will begin by preparing work areas for construction through early May. Here's what to expect:
- Highway 10 will have periodic lane closures on both directions between Benton Drive SE and 15th Avenue SE. In early summer, Highway 10 will be reduced to one lane in each direction, 24-7.
- Highway 23 will have periodic lane closures on both directions between Wilson Avenue and 25th Avenue NE. In early summer, Highway 23 will be reduced to one lane in each direction, 24-7.
- Fourth Street SE will close April 17 between Lincoln Avenue SE and the west frontage road along eastbound Highway 10 to reconstruct the road and install underground utilities. Access will be open from Lincoln Avenue NE or eastbound Highway 10.
- Lincoln Avenue SE will close at Fourth Street SE April 17–21 to connect a city of St. Cloud sanitary pipe below the intersection. Access will be open north and south of the closure on Lincoln Avenue SE.
Be prepared for delays and seek alternate routes, especially at peak travel times. Be patient and add time to your commute the first few days as motorists learn the new set-up.

When complete in November 2024, the interchange project will invest in infrastructure to last 60-plus years, provide a smoother road surface, and improve motorist and pedestrian safety and access throughout.
