On US 41 southbound at milepost 104, there is an abandoned rest area. It was abandoned by WisDOT sometime in the 1990's. This location is about 3 miles north of Fond du Lac. (All photographs taken by Scott Kuznicki on October 5, 2002.)
This is an aerial photo of the now-abandoned rest area. The photo is dated May 5, 1992.
This sign is just before the ghost exit for the rest area. These signs are usually only located at a rest area, so motorists can decide which one to go to. (The next rest area is about 1.5 miles south of Lomira) This one now looks out of place, without a rest area here.
This is looking north, where the gore of the exit ramp was. You can still see the striping on the shoulder.
This is the same place as the previous picture, just looking south.
Looking south into the rest area.
This is probably where the truck parking area was.
The entrance ramp striping is still visible on the shoulder.

The end of the entrance taper striping is still visible on the shoulders.
