ST. CLOUD, Minn. —Motorists will encounter delays on Monday, April 13 through June 2020 as crews work to complete two new access loops at the Interstate 94/Highway 23 interchange south of Waite Park, Stearns County.

  • Complete concrete work
  • Install signs and lighting at the I-94/Highway 23 interchange

Motorists can expect periodic median and ramp closures. Access will change at the interchange and motorists should follow posted signs.
