Interstate 8 Buckman Springs Rest Area Temporarily Closed

SAN DIEGO – The Buckman Springs Rest Area along Interstate 8 will be temporarily closed until at least Friday afternoon, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).  
 
A broken water line in the area has forced crews to shut off the water supply to the rest stop.  Bathrooms and R.V. dump stations will be unavailable while repairs are being made.

Signs notifying motorists of the closure are posted at the rest stop.
