I-94 is closed in both directions between Monticello and Albertville after a semi crash Monday afternoon.

The interstate is closed between exits 194 and 202, with the Minnesota Department of Transportation saying just before 3 p.m. that the freeway will be closed for the next six hours.

This means heavy delays can be expected during the evening commute for anyone leaving or trying to reach the metro area via I-94. 

Traffic is being diverted along Jason Avenue Northeast, which runs parallel to the freeway.
