Overnight I-94 closures planned at Highway 78 on June 20, 24

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists on Interstate 94 will experience two overnight closures at Highway 78 near Ashby over the next week, weather permitting.

Crews will close eastbound I-94 overnight Thursday, June 20, and westbound I-94 overnight Monday, June 24. The closures will occur between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following day.

Both nights, traffic will be diverted onto the Highway 78 exit ramp and immediately back onto the entrance ramp to I-94.

The Minnesota State Patrol will assist with traffic control, and motorists may experience delays.

During the overnight hours, crews will place new concrete bridge beams.

When the project is complete in late August, motorists will notice a smoother and safer bridge.
