Interstate 8 Buckman Springs Rest Area Opens Wednesday

SAN DIEGO – The Buckman Springs Rest Area along Interstate 8 is scheduled to reopen Wednesday morning, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).  
 
Crews were forced to shut off the water supply and temporarily close the rest stop to make repairs to a broken water line in the area.  Restrooms and the R. V. dump station will be available once the water testing process is complete.

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