Hwy 3 in Inver Grove Heights closes May 13

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists who travel both directions of Hwy 3 between Hwy 149 and Hwy 55 in Inver Grove Heights should plan for delays and detours as crews close Hwy 3 between County Road 71/Rich Valley Boulevard and Hwy 55 in Inver Grove Heights.

Beginning at 8 p.m. Sunday, May 13, Hwy 3 will be closed and detoured between County Road 71/Rich Valley Blvd to just north of Ann Marie Trail as crews reconstruct the road. Motorists should follow the signed detour of Interstate 494 and Hwy 149 in order to bypass this closure. Access to residences will be maintained however, during this closure there will be no thru access on Hwy 3 from County Road 71/Rich Valley Boulevard to Hwy 55.

This closure is expected to last approximately 40 days when crews close the Hwy 3 intersection at Rich Valley Boulevard.

This work is part of a summer-long Highway 3 project to add turn lanes, reconstruct the County Road 71/Rich Valley Boulevard intersection and resurface Hwy 3 between Hwy 149 to just north of Ann Marie Trail in Inver Grove Heights.
