Virginia DOT to close two rest areas to trucks only starting Monday


The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) announced that trucks will not be permitted to park at two rest area locations for several weeks due to construction work.

Starting on Monday, June 7, VDOT is closing the truck parking areas at the Manassas Rest Area East on I-66 East (mile marker 48) and the Manassas Rest Area West on I-66 West (mile marker 48).

VDOT says that the closure is due to construction work related to the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

The rest areas will close to trucks, trailers, and other multi-axle vehicles but will remain open for passenger vehicles and two-axle vehicles.

The closure is expected to last three weeks, weather permitting.
