The Florida Department of Transportation’s Rest Area program was originated to provide safe rest stops for Florida’s motoring public. As originally planned, Rest Area's were located a maximum of 45 minutes traveling time apart. This has generally been realized with few exceptions. The Rest Area program has two components: Central Office Program Management, and District Project Management. By District request, the Rest Area program manager develops and coordinates the programming of the Rest Area work program with district assistance, providing architectural/engineering support for individual projects.
Projects currently underway are:
Under construction: I-275 Sunshine Skyway rest areas in Pinellas and Manatee counties. These facilities are being upgraded to the new ‘standard’ rest area design with improved amenities and parking. The Pinellas County (North) facility should be open in the Fall 2018, after which the Manatee County facility will close for replacement.
