UDOT Rest Areas Remain Open During COVID-19 Pandemic

The mission of the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is  to Preserve Infrastructure, Optimize Mobility, Improve Safety and Strengthen the Economy.

Rest areas, welcome centers and view areas are important elements of the state’s route network. These facilities play an important role in relation to highway safety, primarily combating driver fatigue.

Utah encourages drowsy drivers to take a break. Rest areas are provided to the traveling public for this purpose. All rest areas are posted for no overnight camping. However, extended stays are permitted and are monitored by the on-site staff and the Highway Patrol.
