Two new Interstate 86 rest areas for westbound travelers in Allegany and eastbound traffic in Bemus Point are opening today. They include information centers operated by tourism volunteers.
A grand-opening celebration will be held sometime in early May, according to a recent announcement by the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning and Tourism.
Tourism officials are seeking volunteers to attend an orientation session at 9 a.m. April 28 and to assist in greeting visitors in the information center. For information, call 938-9111, Ext. 2242 or 2307.
