Eastbound I-94 near St. Cloud to close at 7 p.m. April 30
Closure needed to repair damaged traffic control devices
ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists travelling eastbound Interstate 94 between St. Cloud and Clearwater should plan alternate routes and additional travel time as the single open eastbound lane temporarily closes at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30.
This unplanned closure is needed for crews to make emergency repairs to orange traffic cones, posts and other safety devices that were damaged during recent late-spring snow storms.
A 10-mile detour will direct motorist along Exit 171 to eastbound County Road 75 in St. Augusta, to southbound Highway 24 in Clearwater and back to eastbound I-94.
Eastbound I-94 will reopen as a single lane by 10 p.m. the same evening.
While westbound I-94 will not be closed during the repairs, motorists travelling both directions of the busy interstate should consider alternate routes until the road is officially reopened.
Both directions of I-94 have been reduced to a single lane between St. Cloud and Clearwater since April 3 while crews work to resurface 7.5 miles of the interstate. More information on the project, including links to traffic cams, can be found at www.mndot.gov/d3/i94.
