The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has closed rest areas statewide in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
“All PennDOT rest areas and welcome centers statewide will be closed to the public effective 12:01 AM Tuesday, March 17, 2020,” PennDOT said in an announcement on Monday. “These rest area and welcome center closures are in addition to those previously announced in Montgomery, Delaware, Bucks and Chester counties.”
According to PennDOT, it operates a total of 48 rest areas and welcome centers statewide. There are two rest areas on I-95 in Pennsylvania:
- I-95 Northbound at mile marker 0.5 in Linwood, PA
- I-95 Southbound at mile marker 51 in Morrisville
Additionally, PennDOT says construction projects have been suspended in all counties until further notice, but crews are available to perform critical functions and emergency maintenance as needed.
