Is Your State Closing Its Rest Areas?
From the Arizona Department of Transportation:
“The most immediate signs of ADOT’s actions to weather the “perfect storm” will be at highway rest areas. Beginning the week of October 19, operations at 13 rest areas will be suspended leaving five ADOT and more than a dozen non-ADOT operated rest areas along the highway system. Rest areas impacted are: Bouse Wash, Canoa Ranch, Ehrenberg, Hassayampa, Haviland, Mazatzal, McGuireville, Meteor Crater, Mohawk, Parks, Salt River Canyon, San Simon, and Sacaton. Two of these facilities – Mazatzal and Salt River Canyon – are already closed due to water system issues.”

Somehow this development had missed my radar.
How about your state? Are they closing Rest Areas in your state?
