For your Labor Day travel: Rest areas open for “business”

Friday, August 30, 2013

Did you know that highway rest areas are not just a good place to referee backseat adolescent squabbling, but actually help improve safety for drivers? True! Data analyzed before and after a rest area is installed shows a decrease in fatigue-related crashes.

WSDOT has 48 rest areas, with 28 located on the interstate system, each approximately 30 to 45 miles apart. There are two in Snohomish County, one in Everett and one in Smokey Point. You can plan your rest area stops with this handy webpage so you can know before you go, or know before you REALLY NEED to go…if you know what I mean.
