New lanes, sidewalks open on Highway 10 in Wadena
WADENA — All lanes and sidewalks on Highway 10 between Highway 71 and Birch Avenue in Wadena are now open, according to a Minnesota Department of Transportation press release. The Nov. 3 opening marks the end of a two-year, $12.4 million project on Highway 10 that will provide the Wadena community with a new, long lasting concrete road surface, wider shoulders, updated city underground utilities, improved storm drainage and safer access and mobility for motorists and pedestrians. Second Street Southwest/Wadena County Road 20 will remain closed south of Highway 10 until crews hook up the city water main beneath the railroad tracks. Motorists should continue to use Highway 71 to cross the railroad tracks in Wadena. Once installed, the new signal system at Highway 10 and Second Street West/Wadena County Road 20 will be fully activated.
