Motorists travelling Highway 10, County Road 21/25th Avenue Northwest and County Road 31/South Division Street in Rice will encounter lane, road and ramp closures, flaggers and possible delays beginning Tuesday and Wednesday, July 30-31.
Motorists should plan for three major traffic changes.
The ramp from westbound Highway 10 to the east junction of County Road 31/South Division Street will close permanently beginning Tuesday, July 30. Motorists travelling westbound Highway 10 may access County Road 31/South Division Street using westbound County Road 2/East Main Street, located one mile farther west on Highway 10.
Westbound Highway 10 between 115th Street and the west junction of County Road 31/South Division Street will be intermittently reduced to a single lane from sunrise to sunset during non-rush hours.
County Road 21/25th Avenue Northwest near County Road 2 will be reduced to a single lane with flaggers controlling traffic July 31 before being temporarily closed later in the week. A signed detour will follow Highway 10 and County Road 40/155th Street. County Road 21/25th Street Northwest will reopen by mid-September. Get detour map.
Motorists navigating Highway 10 and local roads in Rice should slow down, watch for slow moving heavy equipment and prepare to stop as they approach the Highway 10/County Road 2 work zones.
The closures mark the beginning of major roadwork as part of the new Highway 10/County Road 2 interchange project in Rice. When complete, the project will increase safety and mobility in the area.
