Hwy 6 Remer

Cass County

Traffic impacts

Construction will begin on July 5.

Hwy 6 will be an active work zone through Remer in 2022. Follow construction signs when navigating through town. Plan to encounter flaggers, equipment, workers and closed off areas to work beneath the road or sidewalk.

Motorists: Road open, however, expect periodic lane closures, lane shifts, flaggers and changes to access. Oversize overweight restrictions, more to come once closer to construction.

Pedestrians: Sidewalks to be open on one side of the road as crews close and work on the other side. Watch for signs and expect changes.

Remer open: Access will be maintained and open to businesses, visitors and residents along Hwy 6, however expect changes like gravel surfaces and use of alternate accesses.
