Drivers To Encounter Lane Closures North and South of the Metro this Weekend

July 13, 2018 10:14 PM

Whether you're heading up-north this weekend or making a trip south of the metro, you're bound to see construction barrels.

Along Highway 10 in Elk River, the westbound side of the roadway will be down to one lane intermittently starting Friday until sunset Sunday. MnDOT says traffic is being shifted from the temporary lanes on the eastbound side of Highway 10 to the new temporary westbound lanes. Currently, Highway 10 eastbound is down to one lane while crews construct a new Highway 10 bridge over Lake Orono. The project continues until this fall.


Drivers along Interstate 35 are dealing with even more lane closures. Earlier this week, I-35 went down to one lane in both directions near Faribault. Up ahead, single lane road work has already been in place for weeks along I-35 near Owatonna. Both projects continue until this fall.

If you're traveling near Rochester, a paving project is underway along Highway 52. According to MnDOT, the work kicked off earlier this week along Highway 52 between Highway 63 and Interstate 90. Crews are paving all north and southbound lanes, extending a turn lane onto I-90, and repairing a couple of bridges in the area. Learn more about the project.
