Update --- the road is patched and traffic is again normal. It's always amazing what a snarl these highway closures cause in Menomonie.

Westbound highway 94 has been closed since approximately 7 PM near mile marker 42 due to buckling of the pavement on the Interstate. Traffic is being directed through Menomonie, causing a considerable backup through town. According to the highway patrol traffic will return to normal some time after 9 PM. The State Patrol asks drivers to slow down, pay attention, and expect delays. Drivers should try to take an alternate route between Exit 45 and 41 if possible.
