(DALE) – State highway officials are preparing to close two little-used rest stops along Interstate 64 in far southern Indiana.
Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Jason Tiller says the rest stops along westbound and eastbound lanes of I-64 between Huntingburg and Ferdinand will close by the end of February.
He says the rest stops near the Town of Dale were chosen for closure after a months-long review of Indiana’s highway rest stops found that both are infrequently used.
Both rest stops are named for Nancy Hanks, who was Abraham Lincoln’s mother. Her grave is at the nearby Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial.
