Interstate 94 lanes close overnight in Monticello beginning Aug. 27

The lane and road closures are needed while crews set bridge beams, and begin deck construction, for the new I-94/Fallon Avenue overpass bridge in Monticello. Motorists should plan for the following traffic changes beginning Aug. 27:

  • Both directions of I-94 between Highway 25 and County Road 18 will be intermittently reduced to a single lane at 9:30 p.m.
  • All lanes on one direction of I-94 will close will close for up to 15 minutes at a time, up to five times per night, for 4-5 nights; these full closures will occur between 10:30 p.m. and 5 a.m.
  • No lane or road closures will occur on I-94 in Monticello over the Labor Day holiday weekend, from Friday night, Aug. 31 through Monday night, Sept. 3.
  • The closures are expected to be complete by Sept. 14.

All times and dates above are tentative, and dependent on weather.

The new Fallon Avenue bridge is one part of a larger project to improve the transportation system in the area. The project will construct a new roadway and bridge that spans I-94 and connects Fallon Avenue to Seventh Street, and includes three new roundabouts plus additional sidewalk and trail connections. When complete, the project will decrease congestion, improve mobility and safety for motorists and pedestrians, and provide improved access to schools and businesses on the south side of I-94 in Monticello.

The project is being led by the city of Monticello. For more information, visit monticello.mn.us/projects .
