DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists will encounter lane closures and possible delays on Interstate 94 over the Red River between Moorhead and Fargo, N.D., on Monday, June 10, and Tuesday, June 11.

Crews will do maintenance work on the Red River bridge beginning at 9 a.m. each day, weather permitting.

On Monday, June 10, the eastbound right lane will close first, followed by the westbound right lane. On Tuesday, June 11, the eastbound left lane will close first, followed by the westbound left lane.

The maintenance work includes flushing the bridge. The process removes sand and other particles that collect on the bridge joints and abutments, it cleans the railings and it extends the life of the bridge.
