Florida rest areas to close for repairs

| Thursday, August 05, 2004

Rest areas along Interstate 4 near Lake Mary, FL, will be closed for four weeks in September as the state’s Department of Transportation makes repairs and improvements to restrooms and other facilities, the DOT announced Aug. 5.

The eastbound rest area will be closed from Sept. 7 to 17; the westbound rest area will be closed from Sept. 20 to 30.

Message boards along the highway will alert drivers of which rest areas are closed when.

The Lake Mary area is about 18 miles north of Orlando on I-4. Once the rest areas are closed, the nearest interstate rest areas will be 49 miles west in Polk County.
