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.
- Hwy 75/8th Street is open
- All ramps are open
- I-94 auxiliary lanes are open
- For more details, check out the weekly update page
**Note: Signal timings near the interchange will be begin to be adjusted once construction is complete and all lanes are open.
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).
