Highway 610 Project

The Highway 610 construction project is complete.  Additional work finished over the summer included:

  • Transportation Management System installation
  • Lighting in the County Road 81 tunnels and along the project area
  • Curb and gutter
  • Guardrail
  • Bridge painting
  • Turf re-establishment

Highway 610 is a vital east-west link for the expanding northern suburbs.  The construction of the final 2.5 mile segment connects I-94 in Maple Grove to Highway 169 in Brooklyn Park and serves 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 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 was 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.

Key Milestones for the Highway 610 Project During the 2016 Construction Season:

  •  Highway 610 is now connected to I-94 and open for traffic.
  •  Maple Grove Parkway is now open to traffic between 99th Avenue and County Road 81.
  •  The new 105th Avenue Bridge over I-94 is now open to traffic.
