Westbound facility expected to reopen
for Memorial weekend travel
PHOENIX – The westbound Bouse Wash rest area, located on Interstate 10 east of Quartzsite at milepost 52, will close on Wednesday (May 11) for critical plumbing repairs. Work is anticipated to be completed before the Memorial Day weekend.
The drains in both the westbound and eastbound facilities are in need of repair and must be replaced. The westbound I-10 rest area is expected to be open for travelers during Memorial Day weekend. Workers are expected to begin repairs on the eastbound rest area in early June.
While Bouse Wash is closed, travelers will be able to use the Burnt Wells Rest Area, located at milepost 86 west of State Route 85, and the Ehrenberg Rest Area at milepost 5 near the California border.
