South Carolina closes 4 rest areas to save money

| January 29, 2010

South Carolina closed four of its highway rest areas this week to save more than $1 million.

The locations are on I-95, both northbound and southbound at mile marker 17; on I-85 at mile marker 89; and on I-26 at mile marker 202.

Last year, the state reopened several parking areas for trucks that had been closed earlier.
After the closures, the state operates 29 rest areas and welcome centers.
