I-94 cable median barrier project near Alexandria begins June 10

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists on Interstate 94 near Alexandria will experience intermittent lane and shoulder closures when a cable median barrier installation project begins June 10, weather permitting.

Crews will install the cable barrier along 10 miles of I-94 from mile post 96 to mile post 106.

Motorists should prepare to slow down in areas where crews are working.

Work is expected to last about two months near Alexandria. Crews will install cable barrier in the Moorhead area beginning in late July or early August.

Cable median barrier prevents vehicles from crossing medians and hitting oncoming traffic. Installing cable median barrier in strategic locations helps prevent fatal and serious injury crashes.

Additional information about cable median barriers is available at: www.mndot.gov/trafficeng/reports/cmbarrier.html.
