Expect delays on Hwy 10 in Little Falls as roadwork begins April 22

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists who travel on Highway 10 through Little Falls, Morrison County, will encounter lane closures and delays as roadwork begins Monday, April 22, reports the Minnesota Department of Transportation. 
MnDOT will replace guardrail; re-establish gravel shoulders; and resurface both directions of mainline, shoulders and accesses to/from Highway 10 between east of Little Falls at County Road 35 to west of the Mississippi River at County Road 52.
Here’s what to expect April 22 to early July:

  • Single-lane closures on both directions with lane shifts and reduced speeds (Monday morning until noon Friday)
  • Watch signs and expect the work zone to change throughout the day
  • Ramps done under traffic or overnight

MnDOT advises travelers to always slow down when approaching every work zone, then navigate through with care and caution. Other reminders:

  • Never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones
  • Stay alert; work zones constantly change
  • Watch for workers and slow-moving equipment
  • Obey posted speed limits; fine for a work zone violation is $300
  • Minimize distractions behind the wheel

Anderson Brothers is the contractor for the $5.5 million project that will provide smoother road surfaces, reduce maintenance costs and improve motorist safety.
