PHOENIX - The Bouse Wash rest area along Interstate 10 at milepost 52 west of Phoenix has reopened to the public after receiving upgrades to the facilities and plumbing system as part of a rest area rehabilitation program, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
In addition to a retrofitted plumbing system and updated restrooms, the rest area has also received improved ramadas and benches for the traveling public to use.
The Bouse Wash rest area was closed for approximately three months while renovations and upgrades were completed.
The revamp to the water system, which is a key component of the rest area, will help to operate the restroom facilities, the septic system and the drinking fountains as well as provide for the needs of the caretakers who live on site.
