Central Ohio – The rest areas located on I-71 in Fayette County will close on November 30 so that the buildings can be demolished and replaced with new facilities.
The Fayette County rest areas are located at mile marker 67 along I-71 in both directions.
The current facilities are being replaced with a lodge-style building and will feature inside vending and Ohio tourism information.
Demolition of the current buildings are expected to take place over the winter months, and construction of the new facilities will follow.
Once the rest areas on I-71 in both counties close on November 30, drivers will be unable to use the parking lot or the building.
Motorists traveling on I-71 through Ohio will find the nearest rest areas in Warren County, located on the map below. The Delaware County rest areas on I-71 will also remain open.
