Web posted August 12, 2014
Baxter, MN - 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 Highway 210, Highway 169 and Highway 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 and Eastburn Road NE. The project will improve drainage and ensure a reliable, efficient transportation system for the area.
