Jackson County I-90 rest areas to see work

Thu 5-21-2020

Both Interstate 90 rest stops near Jackson will be getting a face lift starting next month.  The eastbound Clear Lake and westbound Des Moines River rest area will be under construction starting next month.  Limited facilities, including parking and portable toilets will be available during the one year reconstruction.

Paving of the parking lots will follow work on the building site in late 2021 or early 2022.

The original buildings were constructed in 1974 and 1975.  The new buildings are expected to be complete in June of 2021 and will provide ADA compliant buildings, picnic shelters, walking trails and fenced pet areas.  The project will also provide more space for truck parking.

The nearest eastbound rest-area is in Blue Earth and the nearest westbound is in Adrian
