Highway 10 Opened on Friday, November 16, 2018
The Highway 10 corridor in the City of Waconia is a critical regional highway running through the City. Regional County and City comprehensive plans include the realignment of Highway 10 west of the City. The realigned Highway 10 is just west of the Waconia High School and Middle School campus. Highway 10 will continue north of the school parcel and eventually connect into the existing Highway 10 alignment. The Independent School District 110 (ISD 110) is currently constructing an expansion of their campus that crosses the planned highway alignment.
With this campus expansion, a new access to Highway 5 was needed and is achieved through the Highway 10 realignment. Joint benefits will be met with the Carver County highway constructed earlier than planned for access coordination, cost sharing potential, right-of-way preservation, and development coordination. A traffic study was completed jointly by the County, ISD 110, and City of Waconia that resulted in findings about the traffic benefit and long term need of the realignment of Highway 10 west of the City.
