Three of Virginia's busiest and oldest highway rest areas are being replaced.
Starting this month, demolition will begin at the rest areas along Interstate 95 in Caroline County and Greenville County. The Virginia Department of Transportation said in a news release Thursday the temporary facilities will be up and running at those locations by Memorial Day.
VDOT says the rest areas will be rebuilt at a cost of $11.6 million. The completion date is by Memorial Day 2017. When completed, the rest areas will be larger and have more modern facilities.
The three to be replaced are the Ladysmith areas on the north and south lanes of I-95 and the Skippers rest area just over the state line from North Carolina.
