The Minnesota Department of Transportation announced today that at 7 p.m. Monday, March 16, both directions of I-94 between Hwy 101 in Rogers and Hwy 241 in St. Michael will intermittently be reduced to a single lane during non-rush hours on a regular basis.
Up until now, MnDOT notes, there have mostly been shoulder closures.
What does this mean to drivers? In a word: change. These lane closures will occur as needed along different segments of the road. Trucks, heavy equipment, orange cones and barrels – and of course workers – will be on the roadway conducting their work. That means quickly changing traffic conditions for each motorist, likely slow traffic and possibly even stopped traffic at times.
