I-75 rest areas in Florida open

| January 10, 2012

Two I-75 rest areas near Tampa-St. Petersburg, Fla., that were torn down have been reopened, the Florida Department of Transportation said.

The new rest area on northbound I-75 north of State Road 56 (Exit 275) has 58 truck parking spaces, while the rest area on the southbound freeway south of County Road 54 (Exit 279) has 53 truck parking spaces.

Reconstruction of the sites began in July 2010.
