Posted in Lanesboro Features

ROCHESTER, MN — Inspiration Point, a historic wayside rest area near Lanesboro on Highway 16, will be closed beginning Tuesday, June 2 as the site is restored and repaired, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Environmental Associates is the prime contractor of the $1.18 million restoration and improvement project. Work is expected to be completed by Oct. 16.

Crews will be restoring the stone walls and other structures, as well as improving the grounds through measures such as clearing buckthorn. Many of the stone structures were built in 1934.

Motorists may also encounter some lane closures near the site at times during the project. The site is about 1.5 miles south of Lanesboro, Minn., on Highway 16 in Fillmore County.

MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
