Those who are lucky enough to have all of this week off to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday won't want to waste time sitting in a work zone.

West of the Twin Cities, Interstate 94 is reduced to one lane between Alexandria and Garfield. Traffic is sharing the westbound lanes while crews resurface the roadway and replace the eastbound bridge over Lake Latoka. The work will continue into September.

There's construction every year along I-35 north of the Twin Cities, and this year is no exception. The road is down to one lane in both directions north of Harris near the Pine County/Chisago County line. Expect to see lane restrictions into October in that area.

In northern Minnesota, Highway 65 is down to one lane in Aitkin County between the Sandy River and Ball Bluff. Crews are in the middle of a resurfacing project that lasts until late August.

It doesn't get much easier in the southern part of the state. Interstate 90 has been reduced to one lane in both directions near Albert Lea. Traffic is sharing the eastbound lanes between Highway 13 and County Road 46. Work continues along this stretch into the fall.

Highway 52 is still closed south of Rochester near Marion. Traffic is being detoured to Interstate 90 and County Road 7 while crews make some improvements to the roadway. The closure will last into August.
