ROCHESTER — Limited services will be available for about 10 weeks at two Interstate 90 rest areas east of  Albert Lea as they undergo construction work to improve accessibility and facilities, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The two rest areas are the Hayward Rest Area, which serves eastbound traffic at milepost 162 about three miles east of the junction of Interstates 35 and 90, and Oakland Woods, which serves westbound traffic at milepost 171 about 11 miles east of the I-35 and I-90 junction in southern Minnesota.

Temporary, portable toilets will be available to travelers, but there is no running water. Parking will be restricted to the truck parking lot during the construction work. Both rest areas are being remodeled and improvements are being made for traveler accessibility. The work is expected to be completed in August.
