The eastbound Interstate 94 ramp to Highway 27 – Exit 100 near Alexandria – has reopened.

The ramp was closed July 26 as crews began resurfacing the roadway, placing the concrete overlay on the eastbound lanes between Garfield and Alexandria. Traffic had been detoured to Exit 97, onto Highway 114 to Highway 27.

There is a bump where the temporary ramp connection and the new road surface meet, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. It advises motorists to use caution while exiting and obey the 30 mph speed signs.

This section of I-94 currently has head-to-head traffic, and is part of an overall project that includes concrete resurfacing from Garfield to Alexandria and replacing the bridges over Lake Latoka. For more information on the project, visit
