About this project

New lane, new learning curve
Please don’t use the newly constructed eastbound auxiliary lane between Hwy 241 and Hwy 101 to pass on the right (the auxiliary lane is the rightmost lane). It’s designed only for vehicles entering and exiting eastbound I-94. It’s not designed for passing, as the lane ends after only a short distance. If you use the auxiliary lane to pass on the right, you could be ticketed.



Install capacity improvements between Hwy 101 in Rogers and Hwy 241 in St. Michael.

Eastbound I-94

  • Build an auxiliary lane from Hwy 241 to Hwy 101

Westbound I-94

  • Extend the Hwy 101 exit ramp at Rogers
  • Install a third lane from Rogers to St. Michael
  • Construct a noise barrier on the north side of the interstate in Rogers

Crow River bridges

  • Widen bridges, includes new support girders and deck surfaces
