Congestion along the I-94

The Problem


Congestion along the I-94 west corridor has reached monumental proportions. Minnesotans have spent countless hours on a roadway that is a lifeline of commerce for the Upper Midwest and to much of greater Minnesota.

This project targets one of the worst bottlenecks on the system and also has the highest rate and severity of crashes on the I-94 west corridor. I-94 from TH 241 in St. Michael to TH 23 in St. Cloud accounts for 40% of the congestion on MnDOT’s Interregional Corridor System, yet accounts for only 1.6% of the system length.

Instead of a streamlined, efficient roadway, Minnesota drivers are saddled with congestion and bumper-to-bumper traffic. Transportation affects virtually every sector of the economy. Increased, consistent traffic raises the likelihood for accidents and hinders economic development in the region.
