Summary of work

  • Reconstruct 14 miles of I-94 from Monticello to Clearwater
  • Expand to six lanes: Add a new lane in each direction by widening the road into the center median
  • Install a new raised concrete median barrier between EB I-94 and WB I-94
  • Install a new noise barrier wall along the north side of WB I-94, west of Monticello
  • Install commercial vehicle weigh-in motion sensors into the new pavement
  • Install a commercial vehicle safety inspection area at the EB I-94 Enfield Rest Area
  • Improve drainage along the corridor, including new water retention ponds

Future traffic plans

The I-94 work zone will maintain two lanes of traffic in both directions during construction, but motorists will encounter some overnight off-peak lane closures. Expect delays and reduced speeds, and temporary access changes for work being done at interchanges.

Information is tentative and subject to change.
