Overnight eastbound lane closure and detour on I-94 near Alexandria

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – Motorists heading eastbound on Interstate 94 near Alexandria will encounter a detour tonight, Monday, June 25, starting at 9:30 p.m. The eastbound lane will be closed and traffic will be detoured to Highway 114 and Highway 27, as bridge crews complete overnight maintenance.

The work is occurring during overnight hours to minimize traffic impacts. It is expected to take approximately three hours to complete.

Currently this section of I-94 has head-to-head traffic, and is part of an overall project that includes replacing the bridges over Lake Latoka. Visit the project website at mndot.gov/d4/projects/94latoka/ for more information.

Tonight’s maintenance work will help to improve the safety of the existing bridge before it is replaced in the 2019 construction season.
