Abstract

"The limited number of rest areas in the State of Missouri does create a major problem for the motorist travelling in this state.

The author became more aware of this problem from personal experience and decided to investigate it. For that he interviewed over one thousand motorists on the only rest area that is located on 1-44, near the city of Stanton. He also took traffic counts to determine the average daily traffic volumes of Highway 1-44 and of the rest area stated above.

The data collected from the above steps was used for the design of a new rest area with an expected life span of 20 years.

From the data collected it can be seen that more rest areas should be constructed in the state of Missouri, since they are so important for safe and enjoyable driving "--Abstract, page ii.
