Delaware opens rest area electrified truck parking

Jill Dunn | May 01, 2011

Delaware has opened an electrified truck parking area at the Smyrna rest area on U.S. Route 13.

State officials opened the 24-parking space area April 19, which will operate 24 hours a day. An automated system allows truckers to use a Smyrna Rest Area credit card to access the shorepower service.

They can pay $20 for a reusable window adapter, which includes the credit card with eight hours of usage time. Additional hours can be purchased for $2.50 an hour.

An American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant funded the project.
