Ohio opens rest area with 41 truck parking spaces


A “newly re-imagined” rest area located in Ohio officially opened to the public on Monday.

On July 1, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine was on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the Ashtabula County I-90 westbound Welcome Center in Conneaut, Ohio.

According to the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), amenities the rest area include 41 pull-through truck parking spaces.

Other rest area features include exhibits highlighting Ohio’s agritourism and fishing industries and family-friendly activities.

“Ohio is the heart of it all – whether you’re visiting a Lake Erie beach, fishing for walleye, or touring a lighthouse or covered bridge, we want travelers to find their next vacation inspiration when they stop at our Ashtabula Welcome Center,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. “Outside the Ashtabula Welcome Center, families can stroll through the Ohio native plants and trees or the Storybook Trail, which features a Dolly Parton Imagination Library book.”

Ohio is currently at work on a project to build 33 new rest areas and upgrade dozens more by the end of 2026.
