The rest stop on southbound I-35 in Ankeny will close for good on Monday night.
The Iowa Department of Transportation says the rest stop will close at 7:00 p.m. on August 20th. Electronic signs will be used to notify motorists of the closure.
The rest stop is being closed because of the construction of a new interchange at 36th Street in Ankeny.
The DOT says there are rest stops available for southbound traffic on I-35 just south of Story City and near Osceola.
New rest stops are going to be constructed between exits 96 and 102, north of Ankeny, in 2013.
