San Simon rest areas on I-10 to close for five months

East- & westbound facilities to be renovated beginning March 23

PHOENIX – The eastbound and westbound San Simon rest areas, located near milepost 388 on Interstate 10 near the Arizona-New Mexico state line, will be closed to the public for approximately five months starting Monday, March 23, for renovations to the facilities, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Improvements will be made to the water and septic systems, buildings and structures. All facilities will also be brought up to the current standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The renovations are part of a statewide program to enhance customer service for the motorists who utilize the rest areas.

While the San Simon rest areas are closed, the I-10 rest area at Texas Canyon, located between Willcox and Benson, will remain open.
