For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. [O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!]
Construction on Hwy 10/County Road 10
Starting Monday, June 4, the city will begin a summer-long renovation on the Hwy 10/County Road 10 bridges near the North Campus. They have determined these bridges are nearing the end of their design life and therefore need to be replaced. As part of the construction, the city will close the 35W N ramp at County Rd H. This will likely hinder access to the North Campus until late September/early October.
The County Road H exit on 35W S will not be affected by the construction. For 35W N, The city recommends you get off at County Rd I, get back on 35W S, and then exit County Rd H. You can also exit at County Road 96, turn left on 96, then right onto Old Highway 8, and then right on County Road H.
June 8–11: Take Long Lake Road
Next weekend, 35W will be closed both directions from 694 to Hwy 10. You can determine the best route for your needs, but we recommend using Long Lake Road. Coming North, you can access Long Lake Road from 694 just west of 35W. Take Long Lake up to County Road 10 and turn right. Coming South, take Hwy 10 W and exit at 85th. Turn left on County Road J, which will turn into Long Lake Road. Then turn left on County Road 10. Visit the website below for more information and alternate routes.
Wednesday Connection at Long Lake
For Wednesday Connection during the summer, you can exit 35W both directions at County Road 96, turn left (south) on Old Highway 8, and then right into Long Lake Regional Park. Follow the signs back to the Bethlehem shelter (Picnic Area A).
