Rest area on I-95 in Rhode Island reopens

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation reopened the existing truck rest area along I-95 North, located between Exits 2 and 3 recently.

The rest area has 17 truck parking spaces.

RIDOT restriped the parking lots, repaired guardrail, installed new signage, activated and made repairs to the lighting system, and cleared excessive weeds and brush from the grounds.

RIDOT said it will continue working on the facility to reopen interior spaces, including indoor restrooms, by the end of the month.

The truck rest area closed in 2011.
