Interstate 94 bridge work near Fergus Falls begins July 18

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists on Interstate 94 northwest of Fergus Falls will experience lane closures and possible delays beginning Thursday, July 18, weather permitting.

Crews will reconstruct the eastbound bridge deck on I-94 over Otter Tail County Road 21.

For approximately two weeks, motorists will experience lane closures while crews install safety barriers and temporary crossovers in the median.

For the remainder of the project, all traffic on I-94 will shift to the westbound lanes while crews reconstruct the eastbound bridge.

Flaggers will control traffic on Otter Tail County Road 21, when necessary.

This is a two year project. Next summer crews will reconstruct the westbound bridge deck.

The upgrades will prolong the life of the bridges and result in a smoother road surface.
