McGuireville rest area reopened after renovations complete

Public can take advantage of upgraded water system, facilities
October 11, 2013

PHOENIX – The McGuireville rest area along Interstate 17 at milepost 298 near State Route 179 reopened to travelers yesterday after renovations to the rest area were completed, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Both facilities on either side of I-17 received upgraded restrooms and sewer lines as well as a new well and water pumps.

This renovation will help ensure the McGuireville rest area will remain operational for travelers in the years to come. The revamped water system will be able to deliver water, a critical component of rest areas, to the restrooms, water fountains and even the caretakers who live onsite.

The project, which was to reopen in September, was delayed in reopening due to electrical equipment delays for the new water pump.
