US 41 Abandoned Rest Area

On US 41 southbound at milepost 104, there is an abandoned rest area. It was abandoned by WisDOT sometime in the 1990's. This location is about 3 miles north of Fond du Lac. (All photographs taken by Scott Kuznicki on October 5, 2002.)

[Next Rest Area 21 Miles]

This sign is just before the ghost exit for the rest area. These signs are usually only located at a rest area, so motorists can decide which one to go to. (The next rest area is about 1.5 miles south of Lomira) This one now looks out of place, without a rest area here.

[Looking North]

This is looking north, where the gore of the exit ramp was. You can still see the striping on the shoulder.

[Looking South]

This is the same place as the previous picture, just looking south.
