Haviland Rest Area reopens along I-40 after $3.6 million in renovations

Both east- and westbound facilities west of Kingman are open

PHOENIX – The Haviland Rest Area along Interstate 40 west of Kingman has reopened after $3.6 million in improvements, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The popular rest stop, which is located at milepost 23 about 30 miles west of Kingman, has upgraded restrooms, ramadas, vendor kiosks and utility infrastructure. New well equipment and a water transmission line were also part of the upgrades. Septic tanks and sewer lines were also replaced. 

It is the most recent rest area to undergo renovations in recent years. ADOT has been investing in upgrades to older rest areas that have been in place for as long as 50 years. 

The Sacaton Rest Area on Interstate 10 north of Casa Grande was renovated and reopened late last year. The Mohawk Rest Area on Interstate 8 reopened in 2017 following renovations while the Texas Canyon and San Simon rest areas on I-10 between Tucson and New Mexico reopened with new facilities and infrastructure in 2016.
