Highway 6/210 will close between Maple Road East and Cross Drive. A detour will use Maple Road East and Serpent Road East. The closure is necessary to allow the city of Deerwood to work below Highway 6/210.

Watch for road signs and allow extra time in your schedule as you drive through Deerwood. For your safety and ours, stay out of closed areas. Commercial semi-trailers or extended recreational vehicles advised to seek alternate routes to avoid tight turn movements.

The schedule is based on good weather conditions.

The work is part of a larger 2020 improvement project led by the City of Deerwood that replaces the underground water main, restores the road surface and turf along Forest Road, Swede Alley, Indian Carry, Shady Walk and Shady Walk Circle.
