Detour begins July 12 for Hwy 250 repaving

LANESBORO, Minn. – Motorists on Hwy 250 north of Lanesboro will be detoured for approximately 10 weeks beginning July 12 for culvert replacement and paving on the highway between Lanesboro and Hwy 30, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Crews will be repaving 8.5 miles of Hwy 250 from the South Branch of Root River to Hwy 30. Replacement of eight culverts will require the detour because the contractor must dig up the full culvert across the road. However, homeowners and businesses will have access to their property, but the direction to get there will change as they start and complete each culvert. The contractor will be in contact with property owners along the route, so they are updated on the work and how to reach their homes or businesses.


·         Motorists on the north end of Hwy 250 wanting to reach Lanesboro will be detoured east on Hwy 30 to Fillmore County Road 26 to Peterson, then Hwy 16 southwest to Lanesboro
