3rd Ave No/Grand Ave E Overlay Project

3rd Avenue N./Grand Avenue E. (County Road 14) from Marie Avenue to Highway 156 in South St. Paul will be rehabilitated. Several inches of the existing pavement will be removed, or milled, and replaced with new asphalt. Other work includes replacing some of the sidewalk.

Expect delays and temporary lane closures. Flagging operations may be necessary to safely move traffic through the area for some of the construction activities. For the safety of both the residents and the workers, please be patient.
