I-64 rest areas will be closed until June 11, state says

The rest areas on Interstate 64 near Midway will remain closed until June 11, the state Transportation Cabinet announced today. "The renovation operations for both rest areas continue," the cabinet said in a press release from its District 7 office in Lexington.

The rest areas, between mileposts 60.7 and 60.2, were supposed to reopen on May 3, but did so only with temporary restrooms. They are now scheduled to reopen at 8 a.m. Tuesday, June 11. "Semi-tractor trailer drivers may continue to utilize the rest areas," the release said. "Temporary accommodations are in place for semi-truck drivers. All work is subject to change depending on weather, emergencies and other factors beyond the control of the Department of Highways."
