Facility closure will be in place for about 12 hours
Rimrock AZ (April 9, 2014) – The McGuireville rest area on southbound Interstate 17 is scheduled to be closed between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday, April 10, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. The southbound I-17 McGuireville rest area is located near milepost 297, two miles south of the State Route 179 junction.
The rest area closure will be the result of a right lane restriction on southbound I-17 between mileposts 294 and 299 which will prevent access to the rest area. The northbound I-17 McGuireville rest area will remain open.
The southbound I-17 lane restriction is part of ADOT’s goal to enhance the safety of the state’s transportation system.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned restrictions on highways, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
