I-90 Rest Areas Near Jackson To Get Major Overhauls

Thu 5-21-2020

(Jackson, Mn.)-- Both Interstate 90 rest areas near Jackson will be getting a face lift starting next month. The eastbound Clear Lake and westbound Des Moines River rest areas 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 be ADA compliant. New picnic shelters, walking trails and fenced pet areas are also included in the project, along with additional space for truck parking.

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