ADOT will begin its next phase in the renovation of the Sunset Point Rest Area Wednesday. Crews will close the popular rest area to the general public through next spring. However, temporary rest areas will be open at the Badger Springs Road exit on Interstate-17 located four miles north of Sunset Point. The temporary facility will have parking, portable restrooms and handwashing stations. It won’t be able to accommodate commercial vehicles, oversize loads, large RV’s and vehicles with trailers. Those motorists may still use Sunset Point, if necessary, but are encouraged to use other nearby private facilities. The renovation will upgrade the water and septic systems as well as the restrooms and vending areas. Truck parking will also be expanded as well as improvements made to make the rest area more accessible for people with disabilities, among other improvements.
