(KNSI) – Two different parts of Interstate 94 in Stearns County will be having work done leading to some delays for motorists.

Starting Monday after 7 a.m., drivers on I-94 and Stearns County Road 159 near Collegeville may encounter delays while crews repair the County Road 159 Bridge over the interstate.

The $887,391 project should be completed by late August.

The bridge will close and there will be signed detours using the I-94/County Road 9 interchange and local roads in Avon, or plan an alternate routes.

Both directions of I-94 at County Road 159 will be intermittently reduced to a single lane.

All ramps at the I-94/County Road 159 interchange will remain open.

The bridge and lane closures are needed while crews resurface the bridge deck spanning I-94, replace the bridge’s approach panels and make other repairs.

The other project, also starting Monday, will cause slowdowns on Highway 71 between Interstate 94 and Fourth Street North in Sauk Centre.

Drivers will run into road crews, heavy equipment and potential delays while segments of the road are reduced to a single lane.

Work will take place from sunrise to sunset, up to seven days per week, while crews resurface the road.

All lanes of Highway 71 in Sauk Centre will open by Monday, June 10.

Flaggers and a pilot car will allow alternating one-way traffic through each day’s work zone.
