Truckers driving through Arizona may be relieved to hear that the Arizona Department of Transportation has updated its 511 website to include rest stops. This change details not only the locations of rest stops within the state, but also whether or not they are currently open, and the number of truck parking spots at each location’s parking lot. There are currently no real-time updates to the availability of parking spaces, but that may become a feature soon as other states such as Texas start implementing the feature.
Arizona has 27 rest stops within its borders, which house 430 truck parking spots. The distribution of rest stops originates in Phoenix and sprawl outwards in every direction across most major highways.
The website also boasts many other features, such as periodically updating camera footage of traffic, weather alerts, border wait times for commercial and passenger vehicles alike, and more.
