Motorists on I-94 in the east metro will notice that new lane configurations are now in place between Mounds Boulevard and Century Avenue.
Overnight, MnDOT reduced eastbound I-94 to two lanes with the far left lane designed to carry through traffic and the far right lane to carry traffic exiting to local streets. It's an arrangement similar to one MnDOT is using in the north metro on I-694 in Shoreview.
The new configuration on I-94 was put into place Wednesday night because crews finished paving all the westbound I-94 lanes a little ahead of schedule. Crews will now go to work resurfacing the eastbound lanes.
The new arrangement will be in place until August, MnDOT says.
