A rest stop along I-65 South has been shut down until next year for repairs. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says there will be several different types of renovations done to the inside of the building. The closure is expected to send traffic further down the road, and City of Elizabethtown Spokesperson Amy Inman says the city is prepared for the extra traffic, and will welcome all new visitors to the town. The rest stop has been there for about thirty years.
