ROCHESTER, Minn. – Motorists using Highway 16 west of Lanesboro in Fillmore County will encounter a detour during construction to replace two bridges in a project that begins on Tuesday, June 3, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Motorists traveling to Lanesboro from the west should take Fillmore County Road 17 in Preston north to Fillmore County Road 8 east to Highway 250 south to Highway 16 south in Lanesboro. Highway 16 is closed to through traffic between Lanesboro and Highway 52. The detour is expected to last through the end of August.
