Highway 610 is a vital east-west link for the expanding northern suburbs. The construction of the final 2.5 mile segment will connect I-94 in Maple Grove to Highway 169 in Brooklyn Park and serve as a relief valve for the heavily congested I-94. Highway 610 also provides opportunities for continued commercial and industrial growth along the corridor.
The project has received funding through the State's Corridors of Commerce Program which aims to increase highway capacity, improve the movement of freight, and reduce barriers to commerce statewide. This project has been developed through a partnership with MnDOT, Hennepin County, and the City of Maple Grove. As a supplement to this information, please see the 610 Brochure that was distributed at the 2013 Open House.
Minor construction is expected to begin in late 2014. It is anticipated that the final segment will be open to traffic in 2017.
More information regarding summary of work, schedule, cost, area map, location, benefits and project layout may be found on the MnDOT website.
