Short-term ramp closure at the I-94/Hwy 114 interchange west of Alexandria starts July 24

DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—Starting Monday, July 24, the eastbound on-ramp at the Interstate 94/Hwy 114 interchange will close temporarily for one week, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Motorists will be detoured to Hwy 27 to eastbound I-94.

Crews will be making repairs at the ramp in preparation for the upcoming concrete resurfacing project on westbound I-94.

Currently, I-94 is reduced to one lane in both directions in this area, as crews install traffic control devices and crossovers for the upcoming project. Once the crossovers are in place by the end of July, westbound traffic will be directed onto the eastbound lanes while crews begin work on westbound I-94. Through early October, there will be one-lane head-to-head traffic through the project area, located west of Alexandria, near Hwy 114, between mile post 96 and mile post 100.

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.
