Roadwork complete, all lanes open on Interstate 94 Avon to Sauk Centre

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation is excited to announce that all lanes are open on Interstate 94 between Avon and Sauk Centre in Stearns County. 

Crews resurfaced the mainline lanes with a new layer of asphalt between Highway 238 in Albany and St. John’s Road in Collegeville, near Avon. The project included access ramps at various interchanges between St. John’s Road and Highway 71/28 in Sauk Centre, along with the two rest areas near Avon—Big Spunk rest area along eastbound I-94 and the Middle Spunk Lake rest area along westbound I-94.

Motorists may encounter minimal lane or shoulder closures as crews remove traffic control devices.

Benefits of the $9.6 million project include smoother road surfaces and reduced maintenance costs on Interstate 94 between Collegeville and Sauk Centre.

MnDOT thanks the public for their patience during this project.
