(Preble County, OH)--Not only will drivers soon not be able to exit I-70 onto eastbound U.S. 40 at the state line, they soon won’t be able to stop at the Ohio Welcome Center either. That rest area is shutting down for renovation and is not scheduled to reopen until late winter or early spring of next year. Meanwhile, the rest area for the westbound lanes near the state line will be completely demolished and will not be rebuilt. That demolition will begin in about a month and a half.
WELCOME CENTER TO CLOSE FOR MONTHS; REST AREA TO CLOSE PERMANENTLY
