ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists who travel both directions of Highway 3 between 170th Street in Empire Township and Highway 149 in Inver Grove Heights will encounter periodic single-lane closures as crews apply a chip-seal and fog-seal to the road beginning Monday, June 3.

The lane closures controlled by a pilot car will occur between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily through July 12. Good weather conditions are necessary to do this work.

In addition, beginning the week of June 10th, expect to see additional closures controlled by law enforcement at all intersections between 170th Street and Highway 149 for up to four hours while crews apply the seal coat and allow it to dry. Chip and fog seals are a protective coating used to extend the life of the pavement

All work is expected to be complete by Friday, July 12.
