CLEARWATER - The Minnesota Department of Transportation is planning on shutting down the eastbound lanes of I-94 between St. Cloud and Clearwater on Tuesday night.

The single eastbound lane that's now open in the construction zone will close at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, as crews make emergency repairs to orange traffic cones, posts and other safety devices that were damaged in the recent spring snowstorms.

A 10-mile detour will reroute traffic along exit 171 to eastbound County Road 75 in St. Augusta, to Southbound Highway 24 in Clearwater.

Eastbound I-94 will reopen to a single lane by 10:00 p.m. Tuesday night.

Both directions of I-94 have been reduced to a single lane between St. Cloud and Clearwater since April 3 while crews work to resurface 7.5 miles of the interstate. More information on the project, including links to traffic cams, can be found at
