ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists may encounter delays beginning Monday morning, Sept. 14 as resurfacing begins on Highway 10 from just east of Foley Boulevard to Highway 65 and on Highway 47 from just east of Foley Boulevard to Coon Rapids Boulevard in Blaine. The project also includes bridge repair, drainage improvements and work on two signal systems on University Avenue.

During the project, the roadway will be reduced to a single lane from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. seven days a week. Ramps along the highways will be closed and detoured while crews are working in the immediate area.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of October.

Drivers should use alternate routes to avoid congestion.

Resurfacing the highway extends the life of the highway and saves money while providing smoother and more reliable transportation for Twin Cities’ travelers.
