Eastbound I-94 Closing Tonight Near St. Cloud

Posted: Updated:

If you're heading to the Twin Cities Tuesday night, be prepared for a detour.  The Minnesota Department of Transportation says eastbound I-94 between St. Cloud and Clearwater will be closed for about 3 hours.

This unplanned closure starts at 7:00 p.m. so crews can make emergency repairs to orange traffic cones, posts and other safety devices that were damaged during recent late-spring snow storms. 

A 10-mile detour will direct motorist along Exit 171 to eastbound County Road 75 in St. Augusta, to southbound Highway 24 in Clearwater and back to eastbound I-94.

While westbound I-94 will not be closed during the repairs, motorists traveling both directions of the busy interstate should consider alternate routes until the road is officially reopened.

Both directions of I-94 have been reduced to a single lane between St. Cloud and Clearwater since April 3 while crews work to resurface 7.5 miles of the interstate.

More information on the project, including links to traffic cams, can be found at www.mndot.gov/d3/i94.
