CREATED Jul. 15, 2013
SEDONA, Ariz. (AP) - The McGuireville rest area in northern Arizona has been closed due to emergency repairs that need to be made to the water system.
Arizona Department of Transportation officials said Monday that repairs to the main water line are being done at both rest area facilities in Sedona.
ADOT officials say there's currently no timetable for reopening the rest area located along Interstate 17 near State Route 179.
Water is needed 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.
ADOT officials say motorists can stop in Flagstaff or use the Sunset Point rest area along I-17 while the McGuireville rest area is closed.
