MOORHEAD — The Minnesota Department of Transportation has closed eastbound lanes of Interstate 94 from exit 6 near Moorhead to exit 15 near Downer, Minn., until crews can complete repairs on portions of the road that have buckled from heat stress.

The temporary detour route is I-94 to 28th Ave. South, 100th Street South, 90th Ave South and 130th Street South.

MnDOT said eastbound I-94 will be reopened once the road is repaired, though it did not provide a precise timeline.
