Crouch Wants Rest Areas Reopened

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

State assemblyman Clifford Crouch says some highway rest areas that were closed a few years ago in a cost-cutting move should be put back in service.

Crouch, a Bainbridge Republican, says drivers and passengers “remain at risk” if the rest stops that were shut down in 2010 aren’t reopened.

Crouch pointed to a pair of Interstate 88 rest areas. One was in Worcester, the other was in Wells Bridge.

They were among six rest stops closed by the state nearly three years ago.

While the action was described as “temporary,” Crouch noted that the move effectively was a permanent closing.

The assemblyman is calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to reopen all of the closed rest areas as part of his initiative designed to discourage driving and texting.
