Eastbound I-94 lane closure in Washington County begins April 17

Roseville, Minn. – Motorists will encounter a long-term lane closure on eastbound Interstate 94 between Woodbury and Lakeland on Monday, April 17, when the Minnesota Department of Transportation resumes road construction between Highway 120/Century Avenue and the St. Croix River.

Beginning at 5 a.m. Monday, April 17, eastbound I-94 will be reduced to two lanes between Woodbury Drive and the St. Croix River. This lane closure is necessary as construction crews prepare to pave the westbound lanes of I-94 through summer 2023.

Then, starting as soon as Monday, April 24, westbound I-94 will be reduced to two lanes and shifted to the east side of the interstate from just west of the St. Croix River to Woodbury Drive. The traffic shift is necessary to allow construction crews to maintain two lanes of traffic in each direction during pavement resurfacing work.

Crews also anticipate closing the entrance ramp from Highway 95/St. Croix Trail to westbound I-94 beginning April 24 through late July. Motorists can bypass the ramp closure by using Highway 95, Hudson Road S., Woodbury Drive and westbound I-94.

All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather dependent and subject to change. MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution and slow down in work zones where workers are present.

MnDOT will be resurfacing the pavement and making other improvements to I-94 between Highway 120/Century Avenue and the St. Croix River through fall 2024. The work will improve safety, traffic flow and ride smoothness.
