Gaviota Rest Stop Closes Once More
The Gaviota Rest Stop closed yet again last week because of a waterline leak. The rest area reopened in May after being closed for nearly a year for renovations, including to the plumbing system. Within a few days of reopening in the spring, it briefly closed again after another leak. Caltrans spokesperson Jim Shivers said, “We do our very best with this project to renovate rest areas, but when you are talking about water and plumbing used 24/7 by a million people per year, you will encounter issues.” The rest stop should reopen Friday.
