A heavily used rest area in central Idaho will be closed for repairs for the summer beginning on May 3.
The rest area, located at the junction of U.S. 20 and Idaho Highway 75, will get an estimated $2 million makeover to add five parking spaces and create separate areas for trucks and passenger cars.
The Idaho Transportation Department says the rest area needs to be expanded because traffic will double in the next 20 years.
The rest area is scheduled to reopen in September.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
