Garrison Concourse Improvements

Garrison, MN

Constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) between 1936 and 1939, the Garrison Concourse is a historically-significant overlook on the western shore of Lake Mille Lacs. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) took action to protect this landmark, which is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, from falling into disrepair. The concourse follows approximately 330 feet of shoreline and juts 180 feet into the lake. Widseth Smith Nolting’s site engineers and construction observers worked with MnDOT to ensure this picturesque overlook may be enjoyed by visitors for many more generations.
