That’s according to a news release issued by MnDOT. The closure is expected to last throughout the work week. 

The right lane of westbound I-90 will close west of Hwy. 74/I-90 interchange in the St. Charles area on Monday. MnDOT says the lane closure is to facilitate concrete repairs on the interstate. 


Crews will display signs warning westbound motorists of the lane closure before their vehicles arrive at the work zone. The length of the work zone is not listed in the news release

MnDOT anticipates the work to finish by Friday, weather permitting. The lane closure would end early if the work is completed before Friday, officials say. 

The work is similar to a project crews completed last year along the interstate. MnDOT says the repairs to the freeway’s concrete surface will prolong the life of the roadway and make it a smoother experience for travelers.


MnDOT is reminding motorists to slow down when navigating work zones, watch for workers and drive without distractions.
