ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists who travel Hwy 6 through Emily may encounter workers, heavy equipment and occasional slow traffic while crews remove trees along the highway. The tree clearing will begin after 6 a.m. Monday, March 19, and will take up to 5 days to complete.

The work is the first part of a 2018 project that will reconstruct Hwy 6 and segments of local roads in Emily.

When complete, the project will reconstruct one mile of Hwy 6, reconstruct the Hwy 6/County Road 1 intersection, install a new underground storm sewer system and water retention pond, new curb, gutter and sidewalk, and improve segments of local roads.
