New rest area to be built in La Crosse in 2016

MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- Crews will build a new rest area in 2016 to replace an aging facility in La Crosse.

Governor Scott Walker made the announcement on Wednesday. The rest area will have space for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism and the La Crosse Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. It will also house other tourism organizations. The construction time frame goes along with the planned reconstruction of Interstate 90.

The rest area that is there now was built in 1977. It has rest rooms, vending machines, and picnic and exercise areas.
