Interstate 94 in west central Minnesota will open at 8:30 a.m.

 

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — (8 a.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota State Patrol will open Interstate 94 between Moorhead and Alexandria at 8:30 a.m. today. I-94 has been closed since Friday at 4 p.m. due to dangerous road conditions.

 

Current driving conditions on I-94 are still difficult and drifting snow and icy areas continue to cause hazardous driving conditions. Motorists still need to use extreme caution when traveling throughout the entire west central Minnesota region.

 

MnDOT reminds motorists to slow down and be patient while snowplow operators work to improve driving conditions. This is extremely important as the majority of snowplow crashes take place during “clean up” when motorists feel they can resume their normal speeds.
