Orange barrels on a highway

I-94 cable median barrier project near Fergus Falls begins Aug. 5

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists on Interstate 94 near Fergus Falls will experience intermittent lane and shoulder closures when a cable median barrier installation project begins August 5, weather permitting.

Crews will install the cable barrier along ten miles of I-94 from approximately the north junction of Highway 59 to the south Junction of Highway 59.

Work is expected to last about one month.

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.
