Restoration of a Landmark Begins Again

Prep work for the rehabilitation of the wall at the historic Garrison Concourse along Highway 169 on Mille Lacs Lake resumes today after at three week government shutdown.

Crews will be dewatering to allow restoration of the outer wall facing the lake. Work requires the closure of the concourse to the public. Access to the rest area will be contained to the walleye statue and the grounds.

Stage 3 restoration work begins later this summer. The wall will be reconstructed with similar pink and black granite that was used when it was constructed in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
