A single-lane roundabout will be constructed this year at the intersection of County Road 26 (70th Street) and Highway 3 (South Robert Trail) in Inver Grove Heights. In addition, County Road 26 from 1,118 feet west of Highway 3 to 1,243 feet east of Highway 3, and Highway 3 from 670 feet south of County Road 26 to 889 feet north of County Road 26 will be reconstructed to allow the roadways to match in smoothly.
A 60-foot deep sanitary sewer will be installed across the east leg of the intersection to connect the services south to the City's system. This is extremely deep but sanitary sewer uses gravity so it gets deeper as you get closer to the treatment plant. We expect to see some settlement over the area in the following year. This will be corrected.
