Interstate 10 rest area at Texas Canyon to close for six months on Dec. 1

The Interstate 10 rest area in Texas Canyon will close for renovation on Tuesday (Dec. 1) and remain closed for approximately six months.

The rest areas in both directions of I-10, located in Cochise County between Benson and Willcox at milepost 320, will undergo renovations to restrooms, water systems and ramadas and will be repaved.

During the renovation work at the Texas Canyon rest areas, motorists can use facilities in Willcox and Benson, as well as at the Johnson Road interchange at the east end of Texas Canyon (Exit 322).

The nearest ADOT rest area, located at San Simon approximately 66 miles east of Texas Canyon near the New Mexico state line, also will be closed for renovation until January 2016.

Message boards will be placed near the New Mexico state line to notify westbound motorists and west of Benson to notify eastbound motorists of the rest area closures.

The Texas Canyon rest areas are scheduled to reopen in May 2016.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule. To stay up-to-date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center or call 511.

For more information about this project, please call C.T. Revere, ADOT Senior Community Relations Officer, at 1.520.705.3574 or email at
