Workzone at night

Resurfacing on Highways 6/200 in Cass County begins July 30

BAXTER, Minn. - Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and expect delays as crews begin work Thursday, July 30 to resurface Highway 200 from the junction of Highway 84 to the west junction of Highway 6 and Highway 6 through the city of Remer.

Motorists will be directed through the work zone by a pilot car and flaggers. Travelers are asked to slow down and use caution in the area where crews are working and be alert for trucks hauling materials in the work zone.

Residents can expect to see temporary pedestrian ramps and sidewalk closures in the area where crews are working.

Work impacting traffic within the city limits of Remer is anticipated to be completed prior to the annual Harvest Fest, held this year from August 6-8. No impacts to traffic are allowed within the city limits during this event. The project is scheduled for completion by mid-August.

Anderson Brothers of Brainerd, Minnesota is the prime contractor for this $1.2 resurfacing project.

Traveling safely through the work zone

Pilot Car Safety

This construction project will be using a signed car to lead traffic through the construction work area at a safe speed. This car is called a pilot car. A “PILOT CAR FOLLOW ME” sign will be displayed on the rear of this vehicle.

There will be only one lane of traffic open during this construction project. A flagger will release traffic to follow the pilot car to the other end of construction where a second flagger will be holding traffic from the opposing lane. Traffic will only be released to a pilot car going in the same direction.

If you are entering the roadway where crews are working by a driveway or intersection, you must wait for the pilot car and vehicles following to pass you. Then you must travel in the same direction as the pilot car.

Do not travel in the opposite direction of the pilot car and the vehicles following it.
