Motorists will experience lane closures on I-94 due to a major project between the Twin Cities Metro Area and St. Cloud. There will be delays as both directions of the interstate between Highway 24 in Clearwater and County Road 75 in St. Cloud as areas are reduced to a single lane.
The lane reductions will begin Monday and occur 24 hours per day through July 2013. Expect major delays during peak travel periods.
Traffic forecasts show initial backups could extend five to seven miles, with summertime backups of 20 miles or more possible during peak travel periods. The longest backups are expected on westbound I-94 on Friday afternoons and evenings, and on eastbound I-94 on Friday afternoons and Sundays after 11 a.m.
