Rest areas close until state budget settled

State legislators’ inability to adopt a budget is hitting travelers below the belt.

Seven of the nine rest stops along freeways in San Bernardino and Riverside counties are closing today because Caltrans cannot pay a contractor needed to keep them open.

Despite reports late Thursday that lawmakers hammered out a budget deal, workers will start closing the rest areas this morning, Caltrans spokesman Jason Goldman said.

“Just because there is a framework doesn’t mean we can pay the vendor,” Goldman said.
