Work to start on $2.6 million project on I-94 in St. Croix and Dunn Counties

Work is scheduled to begin the week of July 30 on a $2.6 million project to improve I-94 in Dunn and St. Croix Counties.

But for motorists the good news is that most of the work will be done during the night, according to Wisconsin Department of Transportation officials.

Crews will diamond grind 12.4-miles of pavement between Highway 128 near Glenwood City and Highway 25 in Menomonie.

This project will remove the faulting in the concrete pavement joints to restore ride quality and extend pavement life.

The Interstate will remain open to normal traffic during daytime hours. However, beginning the week of July 30, westbound traffic will be restricted to one lane between 8p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

Work on the westbound lane is expected to be completed in September.

Overnight work on the eastbound lanes is expected to begin in September and be completed in October.

WisDOT officials say motorists should remain alert to changing traffic conditions.
