Major construction is in the near future for a significant portion of Highway 3.

Work will be undertaken in two parts.  The first will be the reconstruction from County Road 27 to County Road 34.  The second will be the resurfacing of County Road 8 to County Road 27.

The duration of the project is anticipated to be approximately six months getting underway in May.  Construction will include the full closure of Highway 3.

In order to accommodate the full closure of Highway 3, County Roads 18, 23 and 34 will be utilized through the various stages.  The project includes several improvements to the County Roads to accommodate and manage the detoured traffic. Geometric improvements will be made to the intersection of County Road 23/ County Road 18 to widen the pavement platform, extend a large culvert and install guiderail protection. These improvements will be left in place after the Highway 3 construction is completed.

Temporary traffic control signals will be installed at the intersections of County Road 23/County Road 18, County Road 29/County Road 18 and County Road18/County Road 34.
