The Minnesota Department of Transportation is reconstructing the intersection of I-94 and Hwy 75/8th Street. In addition, auxiliary lanes (an additional lane in each direction) are being added on I-94 between Hwy 75/8th Street and 20th Street.
What will it look like when it's complete? See a project simulation.
- Northbound and Southbound Hwy 75/8th Street are open
- All ramps are open
- Intermittent lane closures on Hwy 75/8th St. will continue through mid- to late-October
- For more details, check out the weekly update page
The project will be constructed over the 2016 construction season. Some minor cleanup may be completed in 2017.
Detour map - From early June to mid- to late-August, Hwy 75/8th St. traffic will detour to 40th Ave S, 20th St S and 12th Ave S. The 34th St. interchange will be used for some traffic movements.
- $13.6 million
MnDOT has selected a preferred interchange alternative, the Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) alternative. See the layout (PDF, 9 MB). The DDI best addressed the project purpose and need as well as stakeholder input. Also see a simulation of projected 2035 traffic volumes flowing through the DDI (MP4, 77 MB) or view a low-resolution version (17 MB WMV).
