It’s been a long two years, but the Highway 10 project in Wadena has been completed.
According to MNDOT, the project helped with wider shoulders, underground city utilities, storm sewer and sager accesses for motorists and pedestrians.
MNDOT did warn that motorists should watch for workers and equipment as they wrap things up removing detour signs, moving equipment and traffic control devices out from the area.
They also wanted to note that the Second St. SW/Wadena Co. Rd. 20 is closed south of Hwy 10 to Aldrich Ave. SW until crew’s hook-up the city water main beneath the railroad tracks. Motorists should continue to use Hwy 71 to cross the railroad tracks in Wadena. Once installed, the new signal system at Highway 10 and Second St. W/Wadena Co. Rd. 20 will be fully activated.
