Caltrans closes 7 rest areas

| September 30, 2010

The California Department of Transportation has closed seven rest areas in Southern California because of state budget problems. 

Three rest areas on Interstate 10, two on I-15 and two on I-40 were closed Sept. 24.

The Press-Enterprise newspaper reported the contractor who handles well water testing at the sites hasn’t been paid since June.

The rest areas that have been closed include White Water, Brookside and Cactus City sites on I-10, Valley Wells and Clyde V. Kane on I-15 and John Wilkie and Desert Oasis on I-40.
