Weather Forecast


Lane closures planned on I-94 in early April

Motorists traveling on Interstate 94 west of Alexandria near Lake Latoka will encounter intermittent delays and lane closures during the first two weeks of April.

Traffic will reduce to a single lane in each direction during daytime hours through mid-April while crews work near the interstate as part of the CapX2020 transmission line project.

On Wednesday, April 2, weather-permitting, crews will use a helicopter to string power lines over the interstate. Traffic may stop temporarily during this work.

State Patrol troopers will be on site to assist travelers through the work zone. Motorists should slow down, be alert and keep traveling through the work zone, unless directed by law enforcement.

Several I-94 wire crossings will occur between Alexandria and Barnesville this summer and fall. Additional information will be released in advance of those crossings.
