UPDATE 8/8/2013: Rest area open again.
The Bouse Wash rest area along Interstate 10 east of Quartzsite at milepost 53 has closed for needed repairs to the water system, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Both eastbound and westbound facilities are closed due to water pump issues. The rest area will be closed until repairs are complete. The closure is anticipated to be in place through the weekend.
Travelers can continue to use the Burnt Well rest area along I-10 at milepost 86 or the Ehrenberg rest area near the California state line while the Bouse Wash rest area is closed.
