Sacaton Rest Area on westbound I-10 will close for part of Tuesday, Dec. 13

Maintenance work scheduled for commercial truck sensor system

PHOENIX – The Sacaton Rest Area on westbound Interstate 10 near Casa Grande will be closed for six hours on Tuesday, Dec. 13, so Arizona Department of Transportation crews can maintain in-pavement sensors that monitor the weight of commercial vehicles.

In addition, westbound I-10 will be narrowed to one lane at milepost 185 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to accommodate the work. Drivers should slow down in the project area and heed warning signs for the safety of workers.

The eastbound Sacaton Rest Area and both lanes of eastbound I-10 will remain open.

The system receiving maintenance uses in-pavement sensors and cameras near the Sacaton, Canoa Ranch (I-19) and McGuireville (I-17) rest areas to check for weight, permit and registration compliance. It doesn’t measure speed.
