The Pine Bluffs rest area will be closed the next few nights as Wyoming Department of Transportation crews demolish the eastbound Parsons Street bridge on Interstate 80.

The rest area will be closed from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. and the eastbound exit ramp will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Westbound traffic, however, will still be able to exit at Parsons Street.

The bridge work is part of the Pine Bluffs Marginal Project, which involves reconstructing three bridges on I-80. Construction is expected to be completed in the fall.
