Orange barrels on a highway

Work complete: Hwy 6 north of Crosby reduced to single lane beginning August 8

ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Motorists on Highway 6 between the Mississippi River bridge, four miles north of Crosby, and Moritz Road, north of Pery Lake, will encounter delays while segments of the road are reduced to a single lane beginning Monday, August 8.

The closures will occur from sunrise to sunset, Mondays through Saturdays, and will be complete by Friday, September 2.

Flaggers and a pilot car will control traffic through the daily work zones. Motorists approaching each work zone must slow down and prepare to stop, obey the flagger and follow the pilot car through the work zone. Motorists entering the work zone from an intersecting driveway or road must wait for the pilot car to pass, then follow the pilot car through the work zone.

The lane closures are needed while crews resurface the roadway, replace an existing culvert and install turn lanes.

When complete, the project will result in a smoother ride, extend the life of the road and improve safety and drainage.
