Arizona DOT plans to add nearly 850 truck parking spaces at 10 locations statewide


Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has proposed a statewide truck parking plan that will add nearly 850 truck parking spaces at 10 locations throughout the state.

On December 4, ADOT unveiled a plan to dramatically increase truck parking availability along busy interstates.

The plan calls for ADOT to add 846 truck parking spaces along I-10, I-40, and I-8.

The plan would add truck parking to existing rest areas and also add three new facilities providing parking for commercial vehicles only.

ADOT is looking to add parking in the three “critical” locations below through $32 million in federal funding.

  • I-10 Burnt Wells Rest Area near Tonopah, 103 spaces
  • I-40 Meteor Crater Rest Area near Winslow, 140 spaces
  • A new I-10/State Route 186 safe lot just west of Willcox, 127 spaces

Later, after these three projects are completed, ADOT could add parking at the following locations pending funding.

  • I-40 Crazy Creek, a new safe lot about 35 miles east of Holbrook, 176 spaces
  • I-10 Ehrenberg Rest Area, 51 spaces
  • I-10 San Simon Rest Area, 80 spaces
  • I-10 Bouse Wash Rest Area, 55 spaces
  • I-40 Seligman, a new safe lot, 72 spaces
  • I-10 Sacaton Rest Area, 20 spaces
  • I-8 Mohawk Rest Area, 22 spaces

These truck parking projects would be completed in addition to  $18 million in current projects already underway.

  • I-40 Haviland Rest Area
  • I-40 Parks Rest Area
  • I-17 Christensen Rest Area
  • I-17 McGuireville Rest Area
  • I-17 Sunset Point Rest Area

ADOT is currently accepting public comments on the truck parking plan. If you’d like to add a comment online, please click here.
