The landscape is changing along Highway 10 in Wadena as MnDOT prepares for the Highway 10 reconstruction and realignment of County Road 4. Before road work can begin, some buildings have to be removed.
The reconstructed roadway will include a concrete median separating the eastbound and westbound lanes, and wide shoulders that can be striped as through-lanes in the future. Estimated cost is $8.8 million.
The former Star Tribune Depot building on the south side of Highway 10 was recently removed to accommodate the project slated to begin the summer of 2019.
“The city of Wadena utility building in the northeast corner of Highway 10 and Highway 71 will be removed this summer, as will the Fastenal building in the southwest corner of the intersection,” explained Claudia Dumont, project manager for MnDOT.
The city of Wadena Utility building will have a new location north of Sunnybrook Park.
Buildings to be removed in 2019 for the project will be: Ferrel Gas, Albers Realty, BP Gas Station and there will be some minor structure removals at Hunke Oil. . .
