The rest area on U.S. Interstate 40 in the N.C. Department of Transportation’s Division Three, including New Hanover and Brunswick counties, is open, said Katie Hite, Division Three traffic engineer.

Joseph Chance, Division Three deputy traffic engineer, added some additional information about Division Three rest areas.

Division Three has three rest areas, one I -40 near Warsaw, one on U.S. 17 in Shallotte and one on U.S. 421 in and near Clinton.

“All of the rest areas in Division Three are open and have not been closed or scheduled to be closed. The rest area on I -40 near Benson closed for renovations,” Chance said.

Division Four includes Edgecombe, Halifax, Nash, Johnson and Wilson counties.

“The rest area facilities on I-40 in Johnston County are closed for renovations. The scope of work was fairly extensive, requiring that we close the sites to the public,” said Tim Robbins, Division Four roadside environmental engineer.

The rest area facilities in Johnson County closed on March 5 and are scheduled to reopen in mid-November, Robbins said.
