I-94 lane, shoulder closures in Rogers, St. Michael underway

I-94Motorists may encounter slow traffic and delays as lane and shoulder closures occur on both directions of Interstate 94 between Hwy. 241 in St. Michael and Hwy. 101 in Rogers Monday, July 28.

Both directions of I-94 will be intermittently reduced to a single lane during non-rush hours, while shoulder closures will occur during daytime hours, Mondays through Fridays through Aug. 11.

The closures are needed as crews do preliminary work for the I-94 Corridors of Commerce project Rogers and St. Michael.

The project will add an auxiliary lane to eastbound I-94, add a third lane to westbound I-94 between Hwy. 101 in Rogers and Hwy. 241 in St. Michael, extend the turn lane from westbound I-94 to Hwy. 101, improve the I-94 bridges spanning the Crow River, construct a noise barrier and make other improvements while lanes are closed for construction.

When complete in 2015, the project will help create a more efficient transportation system.
