Highway 10 turn lane project begins Monday in Lake Park

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists on Highway 10 in Lake Park will experience lane closures and access restrictions when a turn lane project begins Monday, Oct. 15.

Crews will be constructing right and left turn lanes from Highway 10 to Raider Road, which is currently under construction. When complete, Raider Road will improve access between Highway 10 and the new Lake Park-Audubon High School.

The project will be done in three phases, each taking approximately three to four days.
·  On Monday, crews will close one westbound lane of Highway 10 while a right turn lane is installed.
·  Crews will then close one eastbound and one westbound lane while they work in the median. Motorists will not be able to access the median crossing at Askelson Drive during this phase of the project.
·  The final phase involves closing one eastbound lane. Motorists will not be able to access Askelson Drive from Highway 10.

A second portion of the project will be constructed next summer. Crews will build a frontage road on the south side of Highway 10 from Askelson Drive to Becker County Road 7.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones. For statewide travel information, visit, call 5-1-1 or log on to
