23 4th of July weekend road construction zones in Minnesota

- If you’re hitting the road this Fourth of July weekend, the Minnesota Department of Transportation has a list of 23 road construction projects you need to be aware of. Please keep your eyes on the road, move over when you can and remember to zipper merge.

One ongoing project that will have a holiday pause is Interstate 94 between St. Cloud and Collegeville. All lanes will be open through the holiday weekend, but the interstate will close to a single lane in each direction on Wednesday, July 6.

"We shut down most projects over the Fourth of July holiday, but there are still many work zones around the state that will affect travel," said Commissioner Charlie Zelle. "We ask drivers to pay attention in work zones, plan ahead and perhaps consider alternate routes.”
