Overnight I-94 lane closures in Moorhead begin May 16

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – Motorists traveling on Interstate 94 in the Moorhead area will encounter overnight lane closures between Highway 75/Eighth Street and 20th Street beginning Monday, May 16.

Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction each weeknight from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning.

To minimize impacts to drivers, both driving lanes will re-open outside of those hours.  However, motorists should use extra caution because the paved shoulder will not be in place.

The overnight lane closures are necessary so crews may continue work on the new I-94 auxiliary lanes.

The closures are expected to last approximately three weeks.

More information about the I-94/Highway 75 project is available at mndot.gov/d4/projects/moorhead.
