If you have to go in Virginia -- you might have to keep going.

The state will be closing nearly half of its interstate rest areas in two weeks.

Virginia Department of Transportation officials are struggling with a $2.6 billion flood of red ink in their budget.

VDOT says it will be adding parking spaces for truckers at the 23 remaining rest areas and welcome centers.

State officials say their limited funding must go toward road maintenance rather than rest stops.
