Weekend Hwy 3 closure in Inver Grove Heights starts July 26


(Roseville, Minn.) – Motorists will encounter delays and a detour in Inver Grove Heights as Hwy 3 (Robert Trail) closes between 70th Street and Allen Way on Friday, July 26.

A signed detour using County Road 26/70th Street, Babcock Trail and 80th Street will bypass the closure.
The roadway is scheduled to reopen by Monday, July 29.

The closure is needed as crews replace a culvert beneath the road on highway.

The project is part of a larger project to improve drainage, repair the roadway and update pedestrian crossings to meet modern accessibility standards.
