MOHAVE COUNTY – The renovation of the Haviland Rest Area southwest of Kingman should be back in operation soon.
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, upgrades to the rest areas between mileposts 23 and 24 on Interstate 40 started in 2018 and will conclude within the next month or two.
The rest areas accessible to both west- and eastbound traffic have been closed for nearly a year.
ADOT has spent roughly $3.6 million to upgrade restrooms, the caretaker residence, ramadas, vendor kiosks and pump houses. Crews also installed a new reservoir, water transmission lines and well equipment. Replacing septic tanks and sewer lines, and rehabilitating water and wastewater systems were also part of the upgrades.
The facilities in both directions along I-40 at milepost 23 are scheduled to reopen before the summer holiday season.
Drivers can use facilities in Kingman or at the I-40 and Highway 95 interchange while the rest areas are closed.
