The McGuireville rest area in northern Arizona has been reopened after emergency repairs to the water system.
Arizona Department of Transportation officials said Monday that the main water line was being repaired for both rest area facilities.
The repairs were completed by Monday afternoon and the rest area located in Sedona along Interstate 17 near State Route 179 was reopened.
Water is needed to operate the restroom facilities, the septic system and the drinking fountains as well as provide for the needs of the caretakers who live on site.
