Westbound I-94 west of Alexandria reopens to traffic, lane closures in both directions

DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—As road construction begins wrapping up on westbound Interstate 94 west of Alexandria, westbound traffic will be shifted to the newly resurfaced westbound lanes today, Monday, Oct. 9, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. For the next two weeks, motorists will encounter lane closures in both directions to allow crews to finish cleanup, and begin removing crossovers and other traffic control devices.

Motorists have experienced head-to-head traffic through the project area since early August, as crews completed concrete resurfacing on westbound I-94 near Highway 114, between mile post 96 and mile post 100. For more information, visit the project website at mndot.gov/d4/projects/94wb-hwy114/.

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.
