About this project

I-94 between Maple Grove and Clearwater will undergo three years of improvements and upgrades along a 39-mile stretch of road. We will add travel lanes, rebuild bridges, construct access lanes, improve drainage, add an interchange, and resurface deteriorating pavement. When complete, motorists will experience improved safety, a smoother road surface, better commercial access for freight and business, and less vehicle congestion.
