Intermittent I-94 rest area closures in Moorhead begin Sept. 8

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – The Moorhead rest area and tourist information center on eastbound Interstate 94 will close intermittently during the next three weeks for a resurfacing and accessibility project.

Crews will begin work Monday, Sept. 8.

When the project is complete in late September, motorists will notice a smoother road surface and improved pedestrian accessibility on the rest area grounds. This project helps ensure MnDOT’s transportation system will continue to serve the state for many years.

More than 20 million travelers stop at Minnesota rest areas annually. To find a rest area in Minnesota, use MnDOT’s website search tool to learn about services and access at each site:
