Real estate market data in Elk River MN by Joel Friday of Keller Williams Classic Realty

US Highway 169 through Elk River has 5 stoplights that create congestion on Friday nights as people head "up north" to their cabins and recreation as well as Sunday afternoons. Morning and evening commutes are also greatly affected. Well, it is about to get worse so they can eliminate these lights. One lane traffic in each direction starts soon at the US 10 intersection as the northbound bridge will be replaced. Also, expect one lane traffic at the 197th Ave intersection for the rest of the year with access to 197th Ave closed until the bridge is completed.

Us Highway 10 will be down to one lane from 173rd to Main St as they rebuild the west bound lanes and the intersection with 169. Expect significant delays especially on weekends. I-94 will make a good detour as will knowing the local county roads. This portion of the project should be done this year but the entire project goes on through November of 2024.

In the end, US 169 will be freeway from Rogers to county 33 north of Elk River. This will make accessing Elk River and beyond so much better and safer.
