If you need to travel between the Twin Cities and St. Cloud, you’re about to see a lot more construction barrels. Starting Monday, I-94 will be down to one lane between Highway 24 in Clearwater and Highway 25 in Monticello. Crews will work daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. until early May. Drivers will also encounter off-peak lane closures on I-94 from St. Michael to Maple Grove until early May.

North of the Twin Cities, I-35 will be reduced to one lane in both directions near Harris starting Monday morning. Crews will begin re-striping the roadway and shifting traffic to the southbound lanes, while they begin reconstructing the northbound side. The roadway will be down to one lane starting at 7 a.m. until the middle of summer.
