I-94 Minneapolis

Can anyone provide input on traffic and congestion through the Minneapolis area? We're heading to Canada from the east and GPS directs you up I-94. We would like to avoid big city traffic.. so we were looking at going across I-90 and straight up I-29 instead to avoid Minneapolis. Thoughts?
TIA

Well it's Summer in Minnesota and of course that means road construction.

Putting that aside, if you avoid rush hour then I 94 is not bad. What you actually do is take I694 to the north of the city.

It's all pretty good sailing through the cities of Minneapolis and St Paul. The delay is northwest of the cities where there is some construction around Rogers, but that shouldn't be too bad except during rush hour.

That will certainly avoid big city traffic, but it will ad a lot of miles to the trip.

I have family in Minneapolis ... we travel there in our motorhome regularly ... I-90 from the Illinois line to Madison and then I-94 is a very scenic route (for an interstate highway) through Wisconsin ... rolling hills, contour farming, woods, rivers, lakes ...

And the traffic moves along nicely ...

I think you would be making a tactical error if you did not travel I-90 and then I-94 through Wisconsin. Just my $0.02 worth

We just spent some time there and used 94 and came in from the north and then went back to the north end of the city on 94. There is construction on 94 and you are cut down to 2 narrow lanes both ways. Just don't hit that at rush hour and you will be fine. We are at the Winnebago plant now for the night and then off to Branson.
