Gaviota Rest Stops Reopening on Monday


The rest areas at Gaviota — used by more than one million people every year — are slated to reopen early Monday afternoon following 10 months of repairs and renovations, Caltrans recently announced. Plumbing work in two restroom buildings was upgraded, and low-flow, automatic shut-off water fixtures were installed as well. Additional work on the electrical system, tile, paint, landscaping, and irrigation was also completed during the closure, which started in April 2014. The project cost $927,000.
