Hwy 6 south of Deerwood reduced to single lane beginning Sept. 5

BAXTER, Minn. – Motorists who travel Highway 6 between Highway 210 in Deerwood and Highway 18, located south of Deerwood, will encounter delays while segments of the road are reduced to a single lane from sunrise to sunset, up to seven days per week, beginning Wednesday, Sept. 5.

Flaggers and a pilot car will allow alternating, one-way traffic through each day’s work zone while crews complete their work. Motorists entering any Highway 6 work zone from an intersecting road or driveway must wait for the pilot car to pass then follow it through the work zone.

All lanes of Highway 6  will open by Sept. 11.

The closures are needed while crews resurface the roadway. When complete, the project will result in a smoother ride and extend the life of the pavement along nine miles of Highway 6.
