DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – Starting Thursday, Aug. 31, at 8 p.m., until approximately 6:30 a.m., on Friday, Sept. 1, motorists traveling on Interstate 94 in Moorhead will encounter overnight lane closures in both directions near 20th Street, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.  
Crews will be making repairs to the pavement surface underneath the 20th Street bridge. The work is occurring during overnight hours to minimize traffic impacts in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

  • Obey posted speed limits. Fine for a violation in a work zone is $300
