Road Construction Affects Getting to Rumriver Art Center

There is major road construction that has begun along Highway 10 this spring and summer, including the tear down and rebuilding of the 4th Ave bridge just south of the art center. This will significantly affect getting to Rumriver Art Center due to road closures, detours and traffic delays on Highway 10 and nearby roadways. We encourage participants to plan ahead and give themselves plenty of time to reach the art center. A quick look at www.511mn.org is also helpful for a look at current traffic conditions. Please visit http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/hwy10-anoka/ for more information.
