KY Rest Stop Gets Makeover

Monday, the Kentucky Finance and Administration Cabinet announced the Whitley County Welcome Center on I-75 in southern Kentucky will close October 4th.The center will be demolished and reconstruction of a new facility is expected to be completed in fall 2020.The frequent closures to the public for maintenance and repair costs have only increased over the years.
