If you are planning to travel this holiday weekend on I-94 between Maple Grove and St. Michael, check MnDOT’s dashcam video for a first-hand look of what to expect while driving through the westbound I-94 lane configuration.
As a reminder, the westbound lanes between the I-94/494/694 interchange in Maple Grove and Hwy 241 in St. Michael are separated. Motorists need to decide which lane to take before the I-94/494/694 interchange. The left lane is a through lane with no on/off access to local roads until Hwy 241. The two right lanes provide local access to exits at Weaver Lake Rd., Maple Grove Pkwy., Hwy 101 and Hwy 241.
The lane shifts will be in place through September.
Lane configuration on eastbound I-94 in Albertville
As a reminder, lanes on eastbound I-94 are separated between Wright Co. Rd. 19 and Hwy 241 through October. Motorists can use both lanes to continue on eastbound I-94. The right lane provides access to Co. Rd. 19 and Co. Rd. 37.
Access to westbound Territorial Rd. from Holly Ln. in Dayton is closed through August
We also wanted to let you know about a recent local road closure at the access to westbound Territorial Rd. from Holly Ln. in Dayton. This closure is needed so crews can construct a portion of the future intersection of Holly Ln. and Dayton Pkwy. as part of the Dayton Pkwy interchange project. Access to Hennepin Co. Rd. 81 from Holly Ln. and access to eastbound Territorial Rd. from Holly Ln. will remain open. Drivers should follow the posted detours or consider using alternative routes.
Westbound Territorial Rd. detour: northbound Holly Ln. to Hennepin Co. Rd. 81 to Brockton Ln. to Territorial Rd.
Eastbound Territorial Rd. detour: westbound Territorial Rd. to Brockton Ln. to Hennepin Co. Rd. 81 to Holly Ln.
The intersection is expected to re-open at the end of August.

More about this project
We are making improvements to a 39-mile stretch of I-94 between Maple Grove and Clearwater that includes more travel lanes, bridge replacements, new bridges, improved drainage and the resurfacing of deteriorating pavement. Additionally, a new interchange is being constructed on I-94 near the city of Dayton. The improvements will reduce congestion, improve safety, improve freight movement, enhance economic vitality and provide a smoother ride for users of I-94. The project began in 2019 and is expected to be complete by 2021.
