Safety Rest Area in Ellis County Closed Monday
One-day closure will accommodate construction on I-35E
The contractor, W.W. Webber, will be opening new ramps to the southbound rest area and closing the temporary ramps currently being used. To facilitate this switch, the rest area must be closed during daylight hours of that day.
This is part of a $62 million project that began in 2007 and is expected to be complete by fall of 2010.
Message boards have been placed notifying the public of the closure for at least seven days prior.
