Northbound Hwy 75/Eighth Street over I-94 opens Sept. 1

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – Northbound Highway 75/Eighth Street over Interstate 94 in Moorhead will open to traffic on Thursday, Sept. 1.

The opening means northbound traffic will begin using a portion of the new diverging diamond configuration. Vehicles will cross to the left side of the road just south of the I-94 bridge and cross back to the right side of the bridge just north of the I-94 bridge.

The southbound lanes will remain closed until all of the new signals are installed, configured and tested. That work is expected to take up to one week.

More information about the project, including a simulation of the Moorhead diverging diamond interchange, is available at mndot.gov/d4/projects/moorhead.
