Congress Considers Bill To Allow Restaurants In Rest Areas

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the Burnt Well rest area will close on Monday, April 14 for renovations.

The Burnt Well rest area is located along Interstate 10 at milepost 86.

Crews will be working to update the rest area’s plumbing and update restrooms. The rest area is expected to reopen later this summer.

“Drivers are encouraged to use alternate facilities, such as the Bouse Wash rest area located at milepost 52 approximately 30 miles east of Quartzsite, and the Ehrenberg rest area located at milepost 4.7 near the California state line,” Arizona Department of Transportation suggests.
