Backups for EB traffic too! Expect gawker slowdown on I-94 EB from Albertville to St. Michael with the closure on I-94 WB. Check out the delays on Hwy 10 EB in Elk River. Unfortunately, that won’t work as a good alternate for EB commuters. https://t.co/wiagwePlXs pic.twitter.com/fKF4un8Arq— KSTP Traffic (@kstptraffic) April 26, 2021
Let’s give it another look! I-94 WB remains closed at the Hwy 241 Bridge in St. Michael. Traffic is being detoured up/down the ramp at 241. You might want to try taking Hwy 101 NB to Cty Rd 36 WB. https://t.co/wiagwePlXs pic.twitter.com/bm8RKCAmb5— KSTP Traffic (@kstptraffic) April 26, 2021
