Interstate 94 (I-94) is the northernmost east-west Interstate Highway, connecting the Great Lakesmarker and Intermountain regions of the United Statesmarker. Its western terminus is in Billings, Montanamarker at a junction with Interstate 90; its eastern terminus is the U.S. side of the Blue Water Bridgemarker in Port Huron, Michiganmarker, at the Sarnia, Ontariomarker, Canadamarker border, where together with Interstate 69 it meets Highway 402. I-94 is the longest Interstate Highway that does not end in a '0' or '5'; in fact, a few interstates that end in a '0' or '5' are shorter.

Route description



Interstate 94 is the only purely east-west interstate to form a direct connection into a foreign country (Canada). No such interstate currently ends at the U.S.-Mexico border, although I-905 in Californiamarker will become such when upgrades are completed.At Port Huron, I-94 crosses the Blue Water Bridgemarker into Sarnia, Ontariomarker and becomes Highway 402, which can be used by motorists going to Torontomarker.I-94's concurrency at that crossing, I-69, is posted east-west in eastern Michigan, but changes to north-south near Lansing and remains north-south in the remainder of Michigan and throughout its run in Indiana.

Montana

I-94 begins at Billingsmarker and travels northeastward towards Glendivemarker before exiting the state to the east.

North Dakota

This route enters at Beachmarker, passes through the Badlands near Medoramarker (near the Theodore Roosevelt National Parkmarker (South Unit)).A public rest area about seven miles (11 km) east of Medora provides a scenic view and the Painted Canyon Trail that provides the opportunity to hike through some of the scenery. I-94 then travels east past Bismarckmarker on the way to Fargomarker where it leaves the state and crosses into Minnesota.

Minnesota

I-94 travels in a northwest-southeast trajectory passing Moorheadmarker and St Cloudmarker prior to traveling through the Twin Citiesmarker and heading east out of the state.Leaving Fargo, NDmarker and entering Moorhead, MNmarker, I-94 crosses the Red Rivermarker.In Minneapolismarker it crosses the Mississippi River, and leaving Minnesota between Lakeland, MNmarker and Hudson, WImarker, I-94 crosses the St. Croix River.From September 2007 and October 2008, between northbound I-35W and MN-280 in the Twin Cities, the highway was not up to Interstate Highway standards because the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) added a temporary extra lane to help relieve traffic congestion caused by the collapse of the I-35W Mississippi River bridgemarker.



Wisconsin

Interstate 94 enters Wisconsinmarker east of the Twin Cities at the town of Hudsonmarker.It passes Eau Clairemarker before turning southeastward and joining with Interstate 90 in Tomahmarker and Interstate 39 in Portagemarker.I-94 branches off eastward in Madisonmarker and travels east to Milwaukeemarker before turning south and heading to Chicagomarker, entering Illinoismarker at Pleasant Prairiemarker.

Illinois

In the state of Illinoismarker, I-94 runs south from Wisconsin to Indiana via downtown Chicagomarker.It is tolled on the Tri-State Tollway to the I-94/I-294 split; it then runs east to the Edens Expressway, where it turns south through the city of Chicago. At Interstate 80, I-94 runs east to Indiana on the Kingery Expressway.

Indiana

In the state of Indianamarker, I-94 runs east from Illinois concurrent with I-80.It crosses Interstate 90 (Indiana Toll Road), where I-80 joins I-90 east towards Ohiomarker.I-94 continues northeast, paralleling the Lake Michiganmarker shoreline into Michigan.

Michigan

I-94 runs north along Lake Michiganmarker to St. Josephmarker before heading east on the long road to Detroitmarker.It turns northeast to Port Huronmarker where it meets I-69 and ends at ON Hwy 402 on the Blue Water Bridgemarker.

History

The first section of I-94 completed with Interstate funds (under the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956) was a section between Jamestown and Valley City, North Dakota in 1958.

North of Chicagomarker, I-94 is being widened from six to eight lanes from Illinois Route 22 to just south of the Wisconsin state line at Illinois Route 173 and 95th Street to 159th Street.

In 2005, the I-94 bridge over the Crow River near St. Michael, Minnesotamarker, about northwest of Minneapolismarker, is being rebuilt.In 2006, a project to widen I-94 east of downtown St. Paulmarker between Minnesota State Highway 120 and McKnight Road from four to six lanes was completed.

The new Marquette Interchangemarker in downtown Milwaukeemarker was completed in August 2008 at a cost of $810 million.

The interchange at 95th Ave. N in Maple Grove, Minnesotamarker is also being rebuilt.A new, wider bridge will replace the two-lane bridge there, which was demolished in July, 2006.

In Detroit, Interstate 94 was routed over the existing Edsel FordFreeway, and remained signed as such until the late 1980s when Michigan deemphasized proper names on Interstate guide signs. Its interchange with the Lodge Freeway, built in 1953, is significant as the first full-speed freeway-to-freeway interchange built in the United States.
