WRIGHT COUNTY, MN – Pavement preservation work on Wright County Highway 6 from US Highway 12 to TH 55 is set to begin Monday, July 17.
According to a press release from the Wright County Highway Department, Knife River Corporation of Sauk Rapids has planned its schedule so as to not interfere with county fairgoers, (The Wright County Fair begins Wednesday, July 26 and runs through Sunday, July 30 this year.)
Knife River will begin the project by milling on the rural segment of Highway 6 (the area between the curb and gutter in Howard Lake and TH 55). The milling operation will not require a detour of traffic. Temporary lane closures and flaggers will be used.
The next step will be to pave the first layer of new bituminous asphalt along Highway 6, covering areas that were milled. Temporary lane closures will direct traffic around the work zone.
Expect minor delays along Highway 6 while this milling and paving work is going on.
Knife River Corporation will cover all areas that have been milled and temporarily discontinue working on Highway 6 by the end of the day Tuesday, July 25, so there will not be a traffic impact for the duration of the county fair.
Questions or comments regarding this project can be directed to the Wright County Highway Department at (763) 682-7383. Business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
