RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Several of Virginia's rest areas will re-open later this week.
Four locations: Rural Retreat, Smyth, New Market, and Radford will re-open on Wednesday.
The stops were closed under former Governor Tim Kaine last year as a cost-saving measure.
But governor Bob McDonnell re-opened them, making good on a campaign promise.
Rest areas in eight other spots, including Dinwiddie and Goochland, will re-open by mid April.
