NASELLE - The Megler Safety Rest Area on State Route 401, one mile east of the US 101 Astoria-Megler Bridge, will be closed for the winter starting on Monday, Dec. 1, announced the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The state-owned rest area will remain closed through the winter season and will reopen on March 1, 2004. It is closed every year at this time due to the negative effects heavy winter rainstorms have on the rest area's water system.
