CHINOOK, Wash. - The Megler Rest Area on State Route 401, one mile east of the Astoria Bridge, will reopen to the public Thursday, announced the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The state-owned rest area was closed for the winter season on Dec. 2. It is closed every winter because of the negative effects the season's heavy rainstorms have on the rest area's water system.
