BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland highway officials have unveiled exhibits at new eco-friendly rest stops along Interstate 70.

The exhibits unveiled Wednesday offer visitors travel information as well information on the region’s heritage, recreational and cultural resources.

The stops are designed to cut energy consumption and operating costs through efficient lighting, geothermal radiant floor heating, sensors to monitor water usage and a new wastewater treatment plant. The South Mountain rest stops have been given a silver rating under the LEED system for new construction.
