On I-70 in Colorado, you’ll find 15 different rest stops. Almost all of them are bidirectional, meaning you can access them whether you’re on the north or southbound side of the interstate. However, the Hanging Lake rest area is only accessible from the eastbound side, while the Deer Trail and Burlington rest areas are on the westbound side.
Here’s a list of all the bidirectional rest stops on I-70 in Colorado and their mile marker location:
  • Fruita welcome center - 19
