Interstate 94, west of St. Cloud, reduced to single lane beginning April 25

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists on Interstate 94 between St. Cloud and Collegeville should watch for slow or stopped traffic as segments of the road are reduced to a single lane beginning Monday, April 25.

No lane closures are currently scheduled on westbound I-94 Fridays from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m., nor on eastbound I-94 Sundays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The closures are needed while crews construct temporary crossover lanes and complete other work as part of a 2016 project that will resurface I-94 between Highway 23 and County Road 159.

In early-May, I-94 between Highway 23 in St. Joseph and County Road 159 near Collegeville will become a single lane in each direction seven days per week, with head-to-head traffic switched to the westbound side of I-94 while the eastbound side of the road is resurfaced. More information on those closures will be issued as details become available.

Also, motorists traveling near the I-94/Highway 15 interchange in St. Cloud, just east of the I-94/Highway 23 interchange, should watch for slow or stopped traffic as eastbound I-94 at Highway 15 is reduced to a single lane April 22 through May 26. That lane closure is needed while the eastbound I-94 bridge spanning Highway 15 is closed for resurfacing and repairs.

The closures are part of two projects to improve 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.
