Safety rest Area opens
TxDOT's newest Safety Rest Areas is now open on I-10 in Chambers County.
Centered around a Texas history theme, the new rest areas give motorists a chance to pull off, take a break and learn a bit of Texas history. The new centers are a bit different than your average rest stop or picnic area. These are nestled in the woods near some of Chambers County's most historical places. Architects designed each building with a Southeast Texas theme. Incorporated into both the east and westbound centers are interactive displays, playgrounds and sheltered picnic areas.
Now that the new centers are operational, the two small picnic rest areas in Orange County between Vidor and Orange have been closed.
