I-35 Thompson Hill Rest Area parking area work to begin June 21

DULUTH, Minn. – Construction on the I-35 Thompson Hill Rest Area in Duluth will begin June 21. Work happening at the rest area includes resurfacing the rest area roadway and parking lots, regrading the truck parking lot to better accommodate truck parking, and replacing all sidewalks and trails to improve accessibility to and from the Visitor Center.
During project work, truck traffic will be unable to access the lot. Work will be staged so pedestrians and passenger vehicles can access rest area facilities. Motorists should use caution in the work zone and watch for signage for access and open parking areas.
