It might feel good to fly down the newly-opened stretch of Interstate 94 between Rogers and St. Michael, but motorists are being warned: This show isn’t over, and you’d better slow down.
Drivers can expect overnight lane closures and extra speed patrols on Interstate 94 between Rogers and St. Michael while crews complete cleanup and off-road work Oct. 26-30.
While all the new I-94 lanes and ramps opened to traffic on Oct. 12, the work zone remains active. You can expect:
- Overnight lane closures, after 7 p.m. each night
- Daytime non-rush hour lane closures
- Reduced speeds, extra speed enforcement, $300 fines

“The project area has been experiencing a lot of excessive speed and cones are being hit on the roadway,” said Chad Demenge, MnDOT Project Manager. “To help protect the workers, the project has decided to pay for extra speed patrols.”
MnDOT appreciates drivers’ patience during this two-year, $28.3 millionCorridors of Commerce funded improvement project.
