Safety Rest Area Advance Signing Enhancements

Status:  Complete
Project Start Date:  08/15/2012


Implementation of findings from both qualitative and quantitative customer research that MnDOT funded in 2009 regarding advance signing for rest areas. Survey respondents from the five-state phone survey rated, "Signs on highway listing rest area amenities and services" among the Top 5 amenities that would increase the general public's frequency of stopping at rest areas. Communication of services and features that are available at each rest stop, particularly through advance signage on the road will help drivers determine in advance whether to stop at a specific facility. In addition, the services listings would help to manage travelers; expectations.
