ALEXANDRIA (WJON News) -- Road construction work will slow traffic on Interstate 94 between Alexandria and Osakis this summer.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation has closed the westbound lanes of I-94 just west of the Highway 29 interchange near Alexandria to the Douglas/Todd County line near Osakis. Traffic has been rerouted over to the eastbound lanes where head-to-head traffic will be required through November.

The two-year project includes concrete resurfacing, three bridge repairs, and a bridge replacement over the Canadian Pacific rail line and Douglas County Road 23.

In 2025, crews will resurface the eastbound lanes and replace the eastbound bridge.
