Highway 6 between Crosby, Remer closes Aug. 18-22

Motorists who travel Highway 6 in Crow Wing and Cass counties will encounter delays as the road closes to through-traffic between Crosby and Remer, and becomes impassable north of Outing, at 7 a.m. Monday, Aug. 18.

A detour will direct through-traffic along Highways 210, 169 and 200. The 67-mile detour adds 25 miles to the trip between Crosby and Remer.

While Highway 6 will be open to local traffic, the roadway will be impassable at the Spire Valley Fish Hatchery, four miles north of Outing.

The hatchery is a popular destination for potable spring water. Those seeking water from the hatchery will be provided access from the south only. Parking and turn-around space at the hatchery will be limited throughout the project.

All lanes of Highway 6 are scheduled to open by 3 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22.

The closures are needed while crews remove and replace two culverts just north of Spire Valley Fish Hatchery. The project will improve drainage and ensure a reliable, efficient transportation system for the area.

Two other central Minnesota roads will close later this year while crews replace culverts. Highway 25 will close between Brainerd and Shepard, and Highway 210/Highway 6 will close along the east side of Serpent Lake in Deerwood. More information on those closures will be issued as details become available.
