I-94 between Evansville and Garfield reopens today

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. –Westbound Interstate 94 between the Evansville and Garfield exits will reopen today. This section of I-94 has been under construction since May as crews were resurfacing both directions of I-94 between Highway 79 and Highway 114, and replacing the decks on the Highway 79 and Highway 114 bridges.

Westbound traffic may still encounter intermittent left lane closures as crews start to remove the temporary crossovers and complete guardrail work. Eastbound traffic will also encounter alternating lane closures to allow for completion of permanent striping, guardrail work and crossover removals. 

The Minnesota Department of Transportation reminds motorists to always drive with caution, and appreciates the traveling public’s patience and commitment to safety during this two-year project.
