UPDATED: Work to Begin on Interstate 94 at Albertville

With the early thaw and conditions perfect for most of this week, workers are hoping to get a jump on the Interstate 94 project with preparatory work this week.

UPDATED (11:15 a.m., Monday, April 23): Traffic delays, which will be a regular thing this summer on Interstate 94 between St. Michael and Monticello, are flaring up already this morning.

Traffic was backed up in both directions this morning as survey crews are mapping out the area between County Road 19 and County Road 37 in Albertville.

Local drivers that are heading west and usually exit the freeway at County Road 37 could leave the freeway at Highway 241 and weave their way into Albertville via Oakwood Parkway/50th Street Northeast.
