The Alabama Department of Transportation is set to replace the I-65 South rest area near Greenville with a larger and updated rest area.  

The current structure will be demolished, and an updated rest area will be built in the same location. The new structure will have additional stalls, urinals, and family restrooms. 

The project is tentatively slated to begin in early May.  During construction the rest area and parking lot will be closed to the public. 

The northbound rest area will remain open during the southbound rest area’s upgrade.

Signs will be posted alerting travelers to the closure.  The next rest area will be in Evergreen, 44 miles away from the Greenville rest area.   

ALDOT is finalizing plans and securing funds to replace the northbound rest area after completion of the southbound one.

The approximately $14 million project was awarded to W.S. Newell & Sons, Inc., out of Montgomery, who had the lowest bid that met the project requirements.  The project is expected to last up to two years.
