Additional truck parking added along I-70 in Missouri

June 12, 2014

An additional 40 truck parking spaces have been added along I-70 in Mineola, MO. The spaces bring to 64 the total number of spaces available at mile marker 170, the Missouri DOT said.

The state used a $1 million federal grant to pay for the majority of the spots.

Missouri has more than doubled the number of truck parking spaces along its interstates in recent years by converting shuttered weigh stations and rest areas into commercial truck parking lots.
