The Pennnsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) reports the following I-80 Welcome Center renovation update, including a breakdown of the improvements happening at the rest area near the Ohio border on I-80. The location has been temporarily closed since September 1, 2023, and is undergoing a makeover. It will reopen in January 2025.
Here’s a simple overview of the improvements coming to the I-80 Welcome Center:

2. Accessible Bathrooms
New ADA-compliant bathrooms are in the works, ensuring that everyone can use the restrooms comfortably.
3. Roof, Shed, and Air Station
Expect a new roof, shed, and air filling station for your convenience, rain or shine.
