The Tekonsha Rest Area is located on I-69 in Calhoun County four miles north of Tekonsha, Michigan. The rest area was decommissioned in 2004 as an MDOT rest area with modern facilities. After the initial closure and demolition of the structures the parking area was reopened as a truck pull off area without rest room facilities.
In response to the goals of the original management plan, a restoration plan for the rest area was identified as an important aesthetic enhancement for the corridor. The project is supported by an enhancement grant from MDOT.
