Boone County Rest Areas to Close this Month

The rest areas along Interstates 71/75 near Florence will be closed throughout November, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced.

Both the northbound and southbound rest areas will have their roofs replaced.

Work is expected to begin on Monday on the northbound side, ending by Monday, Nov. 18, weather permitting.

On Monday, Nov. 18, the southbound facility will be worked on through Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Both rest areas will be reopened at least one day prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, KYTC said.

Signage will be in place to provide advance warning of the closure. Commercial truck parking will still be available.
