Mo. seeks comments on rest area truck parking

| February 04, 2011

The Missouri Department of Transportation is seeking comments about whether I-55 rest areas near Fruitland should be converted to truck-only parking. 

The rest areas near mile marker 110 are nearly obsolete and could be decommissioned, the MoDOT said. Recently such facilities have been converted to truck-only parking. The Fruitland sites could expand to 60-70 parking spaces from the current 31. 

Comments may be made through March 4. Information on how to make comments is at www.modot.org/southeast/news_and_information/public_meetings/FruitlandRestAreas_Jan2011.htm.
