Two rest areas along I-10 near the New Mexico state border have reopened just in time for Memorial Day travel.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says the eastbound and westbound rest areas near San Simon are now open again after being closed since last March for repairs. 

The rest areas were scheduled to reopen last December but the work took longer than expected, according to ADOT.

The project included drilling a new well and upgrading buildings. 

The Texas Canyon rest area along I-10 in Cochise County is scheduled to reopen in July.
