CLEARWATER — Beginning next month, highway crews will begin the final year of construction on Interstate 94 between Monticello and Clearwater.
Beginning Friday, April 15, crews will create crossings, emergency stops, and set up cement barriers.
On April 25, all traffic will be moved to the westbound lanes with two lanes of traffic in each direction, separated by a median.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation says it will have tow trucks on site during peak hours to avoid massive delays in the event of an accident or breakdown.
Although there are two lanes of traffic in each direction, there may be lane closures overnight during the summer.
The completion date is scheduled for August 13, barring major weather delays.
