All lanes to be open for Independence Day Weekend. Single lane traffic resumes July 6. For more project details, visit www.mndot.gov/d3/i94/

I-94 has been reduced to single lane in each direction since late April while crews resurfaced the eastbound lanes and repaired the bridges at I-94 and Highway 15. The eastbound lanes are now complete, and will open to traffic June 30.

On Wednesday, July 6, I-94 between St. Cloud and Collegeville will again become a single lane in each direction as crews close the westbound lanes for resurfacing, and close three I-94 ramps. Motorists should plan for the following beginning July 6:

  • I-94 between Highway 15 and County Road 159 will be reduced to a single lane with head-to-head traffic 24/7 on the eastbound side of the road.
  • The ramp from eastbound I-94 to County Road 75 will close; a signed detour will direct motorists to County Road 2.
  • At the I-94/Highway 15 interchange, the ramp from northbound Highway 15 to westbound I-94 will close, and the ramp from westbound I-94 to southbound Highway 15 will close. A signed detour will direct motorists to the new 33rd Street interchange just north of I-94.

All lanes of I-94 between St. Cloud and Collegeville are scheduled to open by Sept. 30.

The closures and work are part of two projects to improve I-94 between St. Cloud and Collegeville in 2016. When complete, the projects will result in a smoother ride and extend the life of the roadway.
