All lanes and ramps of Highway 10 and local roads in Rice opened at 5:30 p.m. Friday, signifying the end of major road construction on the Highway 10/County Road 2 interchange project that began in July 2013.

Remaining work includes installing rumble strips, building the noise wall and cleanup. This work will be completed by Nov. 29, 2014.

Motorists will find improved traffic flow and easier access to local roads and businesses in Rice, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The Highway 10/County Road 2 interchange project increases safety and efficiency of the local and regional transportation system by replacing a signalized intersection with an interchange. The project creates flow-through traffic for all four Highway 10 lanes through Rice, extends acceleration lanes, improves local and county infrastructure and makes other roadway improvements. The unique interchange design also used existing local roads to reduce costs while providing easy access to businesses and local roads in Rice.

The project is the result of a collaborative effort between MnDOT, Benton County and the city of Rice.
