Why is there so much construction and so many ramp closures in the west Metro?
We understand there are numerous projects going on at once in the Twin Cities metro area. Minnesota has a lot of road miles and only about six months to do the repairs and upkeep needed.
Please be assured that a lot of careful planning goes into the decisions of where and when to close a ramp, a lane or a road to minimize conflicts with local projects.
There are several ways to learn about work on I-94 and other projects occurring in the Twin Cities Metro area, including:
