ST. CLOUD/SAUK RAPIDS - Drivers traveling through St. Cloud and Sauk Rapids should have fewer delays over the holiday weekend. MnDOT says all new permanent lanes of Highway 10 and Highway 15 are now open.

Both directions of Highway 10 between East St. Germain and County Road 33 - and a short segement of Highway 15 - have been reduced to a single lane since April 1st.

During the construction period, the northbound lanes would get backed up with traffic for miles at the end of the week, with travelers trying to get out to their cabins.

While the project is substantially complete, you will still encounter intermittent closures next Tuesday through the end of July while crews complete the work.
