The Sacaton Rest Area on Interstate 10 south of the Phoenix area is scheduled to close Wednesday, Oct. 18, for a $4 million renovation that’s expected to take six months, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Work planned for the rest area, located on both westbound and eastbound I-10 between Casa Blanca Road and State Route 387 near Casa Grande, includes upgrades to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, replacing a water line, replacing the septic tanks and sewer lines, upgrading the electrical and mechanical systems, and painting.
During the closure, the nearest traveler facilities will be in the Phoenix and Casa Grande areas and on the Gila River Indian Community.
ADOT has made improvements to rest areas in recent years to repair and replace infrastructure that has been in place for as long as 50 years. That includes drilling new wells to provide adequate water supplies and replacing septic systems.
