Interstate 17: Sunset Point Rest Area Rehabilitation


This project is complete


The Arizona Department of Transportation has completed a project at the Sunset Point Rest Area facility located along Interstate 17 at milepost 252, approximately 10 miles south of Cordes Junction. The $7.5 million project included rehabilitation and upgrades to the facility’s water and septic systems, ramadas, restrooms and vending buildings. In addition, truck parking has been expanded. Some of the project improvements include:

  • Replacement and upgrade of the sidewalks, landscape, lighting fixtures, doors, sinks, hardware, hand dryers and signage. 
  • Renovation of the existing ramadas.
  • Renovation of the sundial memorial.

The improvements also make the rest area more accessible for persons with disabilities.
