County Roads 28 and 63 will be reconstructed at Highway 55 in Inver Grove Heights. As part of the reconstruction project, the intersection with Highway 55 will be realigned to the southeast of the current location. The design includes extending the 4-lane divided section of County Road 28 (south of Highway 55) through the Highway 55 intersection to Amana Trail, intersection improvements at Highway 55 including turn lanes and a permanent signal system, full access for the Amana Trail/Argenta Trail intersection, and realignment of 77th Street. This project will improve safety and provide capacity for future traffic consistent with the City’s plans for development.
Project timeline: April 3, 2017–June 2018
