At the groundbreaking ceremony for the I-94 expansion in Albertville this morning, Minnesota Department of Transportation Commissioner Charlie Zelle announced that the temporary third lane of I-94 between Monticello and Clearwater will be made permanent when they do the resurfacing of the highway in that area. State Senator Jerry Relph (R-St. Cloud) issued the following statement.
“I could not be happier with Commissioner Zelle’s announcement. This is a smart, effective use of resources by the department. Everyone who lives of travels up this way knows what a mess I-94 is; adding a permanent third lane will make for happier travelers.”
