Harrisburg, Penn. — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has reopened indoor facilities at three additional rest areas statewide.

PennDOT’s rest areas were temporarily closed statewide on March 17 in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s mitigation guidance regarding COVID-19 to ensure that proper safety and sanitation protocols were in place. Many rest areas across Pennsylvania have since reopened.
