In an effort to improve 27 rest areas along the New York State Thruway, the NYS Thruway Authority will be temporarily closing ten of the rest areas later this month.

The rest areas will be closed beginning July 29 to start work on the $450 million project. Improvements will include increased truck parking, showers, laundry services and fitness centers.
