“This project highlights a great partnership between the city of Dayton, the I-94 West Corridor Coalition, and MnDOT, and shows what can be done working together,” said MnDOT Commissioner Margaret Anderson Kelliher. “We are grateful for the communities’ patience during construction and look forward to how these improvements, along with the Dayton Parkway Interchange, will improve safety and benefit the region.”
Work on I-94 included:
- Reconstructing nine miles of the freeway
- Resurfacing ramps
- Adding a lane in both directions of I-94 between Highway 610 in Maple Grove and Highway 101 in Rogers, for a total of four lanes each way
- Constructing a roundabout at Brockton Lane and Territorial Road in Hassan Township
- Building four new noise walls
- Adding 10 new spaces and real-time parking availability signs at Elm Creek Rest Area
The project started in April 2020. C.S. McCrossan and Michael Baker International served as the contractors in a joint partnership.
Led by the city of Dayton, work also is complete on a new diverging diamond interchange southeast of Brockton Lane in Dayton. The Dayton Parkway Interchange addresses a six-mile I-94 interchange gap between Maple Grove and Rogers. The new interchange eases capacity issues, improves freight travel, increases the corridor’s overall safety and mobility, and increases access to surrounding communities.
