Weekend Hwy 3 closure in Inver Grove Heights starts Aug. 23


(Roseville, Minn.) – Motorists will encounter delays and a detour in Inver Grove Heights as Hwy 3 (Robert Trail) between 70th Street and Allen Way closes at 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23.

A signed detour using County Road 26/70th Street, Babcock Trail and 80th Street will bypass the closure.

The roadway is scheduled to re-open by 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 26.

The closure is needed as crews replace a culvert beneath the roadway.

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