Rest area south of Brookings reopens

BROOKINGS – South Dakota Department of Transportation officials say the Ward Road rest area on Interstate 29 south of Brookings reopened Thursday.

This rest area was closed in May to allow a contractor to make necessary Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) upgrades to the facilities as outlined in the “South Dakota Interstate Rest Area Revitalization Plan” developed by the departments of Tourism and Transportation in 2016.

ADA and other upgrades were also completed earlier this summer at the White Lake rest area on Interstate 90.
