I-94 construction begins near Fergus Falls, Minn.FERGUS FALLS, Minn. – Drivers on Interstate 94 northwest of here could see delays when construction begins Thursday.
Crews will reconstruct the eastbound bridge deck on I-94 over Otter Tail County Road 21.
Construction is expected to take about two weeks and some lanes will be closed while crews install safety barriers and temporary crossovers in the median.
For the rest of the project, all traffic on I-94 will shift to the westbound lanes while crews reconstruct the eastbound bridge.
When necessary, flaggers will control traffic on Otter Tail County Road 21.
The full project should take two years. Next summer, crews will reconstruct the westbound bridge deck.
The upgrades will prolong the life of the bridges and result in a smoother road.
