DES MOINES – The Iowa Legislature is studying the future of its rest stops along Iowa freeways.

Under a study bill currently in committee in the Iowa Senate, before a decision is made by the Iowa Department of Transportation to build a new rest area, a “thorough cost-benefit analysis” would need be conducted to compare the cost of locating and constructing a new rest area and the cost of keeping an existing rest area open. All available options for reconstructing, expanding, or otherwise improving an existing rest area would have to be considered. No new rest area would be constructed unless it is determined that making improvements to the existing rest area would be cost prohibitive.

Lobbyists for Kum & Go and Truckstops of Iowa are so far undecided on support for the bill.
