Route 10 is 144 kilometres long and runs from Fredericton to Sussex. The road goes northeast from the Fredericton suburb of Barker's Point to the village of Minto, then loops around Grand Lake through Chipman to Youngs Cove. Until 2001 this was the end of the highway, but with the opening of a new 4-laned section of the Trans-Canada Highway (Route 2), it now follows the old alignment of that highway from Youngs Cove to a junction with Route 1 in Sussex.
In the 1940s, a direct road was built from Minto to Fredericton, passing the site of the former World War II internment camp at Ripples. This road is now known as the "Richibucto Road". With upgrades to Route 9 later in the decade, Route 10 was shortened to end at Youngs Cove. There were no more major changes to Route 10 until 2001, when it was extended southeast from Youngs Cove to Sussex along the former Route 2 alignment.
