Motorists on Highway 6 between the Mississippi River bridge, 4 miles north of Crosby, and Moritz Road, north of Perry Lake, will encounter delays while segments of the road are reduced to a single lane beginning Aug. 8.

The closures will occur from sunrise to sunset, Mondays through Saturdays, and will be complete by Sept. 2, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said in a release.

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, MnDOT said.
