Morning crash on I-94 backs up traffic

Traffic is flowing again after a crash Thursday morning in the westbound lanes of Interstate 94 near Lakeland.

Minnesota Department of Transportation cameras near Stagecoach Trail showed a semi lying on its side.

The Minnesota State Patrol said the incident involved only the semi, and the driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Motorists were being diverted towards Highway 95 north to Stillwater or south toward Afton Boulevard. As of 8 a.m., the Wisconsin Department of Transportation said traffic was backed up on westbound I-94 for at least three miles in St. Croix County.

Construction work in the area made matters worse, and crews temporarily moved a construction barrier to get a single lane of traffic around the crash scene.

The roadway finally reopened just before 10:30 a.m., allowing backed-up traffic to finally start moving.
