U.S. Highway 10 (U.S. 10) is a major divided highway for almost all of its length in the U.S. state of Minnesota. The route runs through the central portion of the state, following generally the alignment of the former Northern Pacific Railway (now BNSF) and connects the cities of Moorhead, Detroit Lakes, Wadena, Little Falls, St. Cloud, Anoka, Saint Paul, and Cottage Grove.
U.S. 10 within Minnesota is 275 miles (443 km) in length.
East of Mounds View, U.S. 10 is marked mostly along Interstate Highways until Saint Paul, where the route runs concurrent with U.S. 61 to Cottage Grove. Highway 10 then heads east to the Wisconsin state line and exits the state.
U.S. 10 is a divided highway along most of its length through the state, with posted 65 mph speed limits along much of the way, except for two-lane or undivided four-lane stretches through Wadena and Motley. There are some 60 mph (97 km/h) posted speed limits in the four-lane section between Elk River and Anoka.
Legally, the Minnesota section of U.S. 10 is defined as unmarked Constitutional / Legislative Routes 2, 37, 27, 3, 62, and 94 in the Minnesota Statutes §§ 161.114(2) and 161.115(25). U.S. 10 is not marked with these legislative numbers along the actual highway.
U.S. Highway 10 was established on November 11, 1926. Originally, the route split between Moorhead and St. Cloud into U.S. 10N and U.S. 10S. In 1934, Highway 10S was replaced by U.S. Highway 52, and 10N became simply Highway 10.
The freeway section of Highway 10 between the city of Anoka and University Avenue (at the Coon Rapids / Blaine boundary line) was completed in the early 1970s. The new freeway section of Highway 10 between University Avenue and Interstate 35W in Mounds View was completed in 1999.
