    10 years seems a long time to build parking spots that will fall far short again of what is required.

    So 10 years to create under capacity lots. By the time it's done. They'll be too small.

    275 million to revamp rest areas? That seems like a bit much

    Simple math shows us thats a little over 17 million per rest area. To add 1400 spaces total. Which is 87.5 spaces per rest area. Which comes down to around $195,000 per space..... Does it really cost this much to build truck parking? I think every truckstop would go broke if it cost that much.
