Lane closures begin Friday on westbound Interstate 94 near Alexandria

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. —Motorists traveling westbound on Interstate 94 near Alexandria will encounter lane closures near the Highway 29 interchange starting Friday, May 29. Crews will be working along the center median through Monday, June 1 to complete sloping and guardrail installation from last year’s concrete resurfacing project between Highway 29 to Highway 114. The work wasn’t able to be completed in the fall due to wet conditions. 

For more information about last year’s resurfacing project, visit mndot.gov/d4/projects/i94eastbound.

MnDOT is committed to protecting the health, safety and well-being of its employees, contractors and all Minnesotans. Crews continue to follow the guidance of state and federal health officials to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
