Key milestones for the I-94 Maple Grove to Rogers project during the 2021 construction season (all dates below are tentative and weather dependent):

  • Temporary off-peak shoulder and lane closures started in early March.
  • Westbound traffic was shifted to the eastbound side of I-94 in April. Three lanes of traffic on I-94 will be maintained in each direction during construction.
  • The ramp from Weaver Lake Road to westbound I-94 has reopened.
  • The ramp from westbound I-94 to Weaver Lake Road will be closed for approximately three weeks starting on August 16. A detour will be provided using westbound I-94 to eastbound I-94 to Maple Grove Parkway to Weaver Lake Road. Access to and from I-94 eastbound at the Weaver Lake Road interchange will be maintained.
  • Westbound I-94 on-ramp at Maple Grove Parkway was closed on August 9 for approximately three weeks.  A detour is provided using northbound Maple Grove Parkway to westbound Highway 610 to westbound I-94.  All remaining access to and from I-94 at the Maple Grove Parkway interchange will be maintained.
