Helicopter to string transmission wire across I-94 [UPDATED]Published 9:32am Friday, June 14, 2013 Updated 11:49am Friday, June 14, 2013
Motorists traveling on Interstate 94 between Osakis and Alexandria will encounter intermittent delays on June 17 when CapX2020 crews use a helicopter to pull wires over the interstate. Traffic may stop temporarily during this work.
State Patrol troopers will be on site to assist travelers through the work zone. Motorists should expect to slow down and take direction from the troopers working in the area.
Work is expected to take less than an hour to complete, weather permitting.
Motorists are reminded to keep their eyes on the road and to keep traveling through the work zone, unless directed by law enforcement.
Four additional I-94 wire crossings will occur between Alexandria and St. Cloud this summer. Additional information will be released in advance of those crossings.
