The Interstate 79 southbound and northbound rest stops near the Crawford-Erie county line will be closed for 10 days so paving can be done on the ramps and parking lot.

The areas closed Monday, June 13, and, weather permitting, will reopen June 24.

Work at the rest stops is part of a two-year project on nearly 11 miles of I-79 in Crawford and Erie counties, including paving the northbound and southbound lanes from milepost 154 in Hayfield Township, Crawford County to milepost 165 in Washington Township, Erie County, and rehabilitating 10 bridges.
