New signs installed
Cory Williamson and Blake Johnson (right) , with the Minnesota Department of Transportation, installed this sign at the intersection of hwys. 27 and 47, east of Isle, on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 29. 

On Wednesday, May 29 and Thursday, May 30, crews with the Minnesota Department of Transportation were out around the lake setting up signs to officially designate the Lake Mille Lacs Scenic Byway route.

For those hoping to make this lake encompassing loop, the Lake Mille Lacs Scenic Byway begins in Onamia on Hwy. 27, heading west toward County Road 26. Co. Rd. 26 heads north, eventually meeting U.S. Hwy. 169. Traveling north on Hwy. 169, the route turns east on Hwy. 18. The route continues to circumnavigate the lake, turning south on Hwy. 47 and then traveling east through Isle on Hwy. 27. Hwy. 27 then connects back to US Hwy. 169.

New signs show the way
The new Lake Mille Lacs Scenic Byway signs (above), designed by award-winning Minnesota graphic artist Mark Herman, have been placed all around the Scenic Byway route.

The sign was designed by award-winning Minnesota graphic artist Mark Herman, who has previously done promotional work with the NFL, Nike and Coca-Cola.

With signage now placed as of Thursday, May 30, travelers have new incentive to come see Mille Lacs Lake from all four sides.
