BAXTER, Minn. — Motorists will encounter intermittent lane closures and traffic directed by flaggers and a pilot car on Highway 6 starting Monday, Sept. 20, when a resurfacing project begins at the bridge in Outing to the west junction of Highway 200 in Remer.
This project also includes guardrail replacement, shoulder work and striping.
When completed motorists will experience a smoother, safer road.
Anderson Brothers Construction of Brainerd is the prime contractor for this $1.49 million roadway improvement project. The project is scheduled to be completed by late October, weather permitting.
During construction and road maintenance work, the Minnesota Department of Transportation urges drivers to:
- Check www.511mn.org or call 511 for up-to-date information about traffic and road conditions.
- Stay alert; expect the unexpected.
- Never enter a road that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
Plan ahead and expect delays, especially during peak travel times.

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
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.
