Local motorists will encounter delays and a detour in Inver Grove Heights as Minnesota Highway 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.
