Interstate 94 Hasty to Clearwater reduced to single lane overnight beginning Aug. 9

ST CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists who travel westbound Interstate 94 between Hasty and Clearwater after 7 p.m. will encounter construction crews, equipment and slow or stopped traffic as the road is reduced to a single lane overnight beginning Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017.

The lane closures will begin at 7 p.m. most days of the week. No lane closures will occur before 10 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays. All lanes of I-94 between Hasty and Clearwater will open by 9 a.m. each day.

The overnight closures are needed while crews install new steel dowel bars along several test segments of roadway where the existing, 44-year-old dowel bars have failed. Crews will grind the roadway surface later this year; that work is part of a separate, larger project to improve the ride of I-94 between Clearwater and Monticello in fall 2017.

More information on future work and required lane closures will be issued as details become available.
