Weather permitting, a rest area on southbound Interstate 81 will be closed two nights this week so a PennDOT contractor can perform final paving on southbound I-81. The rest area, which is located between Exit 44 (Route 465/Allen Road) and Exit 37 (Route 233/Newville), will be closed from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. the nights of Wednesday, Sept. 23, and Thursday, Sept. 24.

The next available rest area is located about 50 miles south of the closed facility.
