UPDATED: MnDOT provides recap on I-94 projects affecting Monticello

FRIDAY, MAY 20 UPDATED 1:45 p.m. Motorists traveling Interstate 94 between Clearwater and St. Cloud will find all lanes and ramps open throughout the extended Memorial Day holiday weekend.

All lanes and ramps were opened at 9 p.m. Thursday, May 23 and will remain open through 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 28.

At 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 28, I-94 between Clearwater and St. Cloud will again be reduced to a single lane in each direction. Traffic will be switched to two-way traffic and a 60 m.p.h. posted speed on the new eastbound lanes while crews construct new westbound lanes, said J.P. Gillach, MnDOT District 3 public affairs coordinator.

The lane closures are part of the I-94 Clearwater to St. Cloud resurfacing project. More information on the project can be found at www.dot.state.mn.us/d3/i94/.

Crews have been placing a concrete overlay on the existing surface and reconstructing height clearances beneath four overpasses and replacing guardrails and cable median barriers. The project is estimated at $16.4 million.

I-94 concrete surface repair and resurfacing of ramps and shoulders is scheduled westbound on a 10-mile stretch from Wright County Road 18 and County Road 39 in Monticello to the Crow River Bridge in St. Michael. Eastbound work will be along a 1.5 mile Albertville stretch.
