Interstate 94 lane closures in St. Cloud, St. Joseph, Collegeville begin April 22

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists on Interstate 94 and Highway 15 in St. Cloud, and on I-94 between St. Cloud and Collegeville, may encounter delays as a series of lane closures begin Friday, April 22.
      
Eastbound I-94 at Highway 15 will be reduced to a single lane and shifted to the single auxiliary lane at the I-94/Highway 15 interchange. The closure, which will be in place through May 26, is needed while crews resurface and repair the eastbound I-94 bridge spanning Highway 15.

Motorists who travel southbound Highway 15 to eastbound I-94 during peak travel times should seek alternate routes and stagger travel times to avoid morning rush hours, if possible.

Beginning Monday, April 25, segments of I-94 between Highway 23, west of St. Cloud, and County Road 159, near Collegeville, will be reduced to a single lane most days of the week. The closures are needed while crews build temporary crossover lanes as part of a project to resurface six miles of I-94.

The closures are part of two projects that will improve segments of I-94 between St. Cloud and Collegeville in 2016. When complete, the projects will result in a smoother ride and extend the life of the roadway.

For more information on this and other I-94 projects in St. Cloud and surrounding areas, visit the project website at www.mndot.gov/d3/i94/.
