Sunbeam Rest Area on Interstate 8 Re-Opens to the Public

IMPERIAL, Calif. –– Caltrans crews have re-opened the Sunbeam rest area on Interstate 8. The rest area was closed in early January due to a loss of water pressure.

Caltrans crews working with the Seeley Water District replaced a faulty valve that restored water service to both rest areas.

Motorists are reminded to Be Work Zone Alert and to Move Over a lane when safe to do so, or slow when highway workers are present with amber lights flashing.
