ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) If you drive Interstate 94 between St. Cloud and Clearwater on a regular basis--you might want to find an alternate route starting today.
MnDOT says travel will be reduced to a single lane 24 hours a day--in both directions effective today--as a resurfacing project begins on that seven-and-a-half mile stretch of highway.
Backups of five to seven miles are expected, with summertime backups of 20 miles or more possible during peak traffic periods. The longest backups are expected to be on westbound I-94 on Friday afternoons and evenings, and eastbound 94 on Friday afternoons and Sundays after 11 am.
The $16.5 million dollar project should be finished sometime in July.
