07/27: Weekend Closures

The following Phoenix area roads will be closed or have lane restrictions this weekend. Freeway work often occurs overnight. The Arizona Department of Transportation recommends drivers consider alternate routes or give themselves extra travel time while the following restrictions are in place:

Interstate 10/Interstate 17 and Arizona 51
Closure: Eastbound Interstate 10 closed between the I-17 "Stack" interchange and the Arizona 51 "Ministack" from 9 tonight to 11:30 p.m. Saturday for tunnel maintenance and pavement repairs. The eastbound I-10 on-ramp at Seventh Street will be open only for traffic connecting to northbound Arizona 51 or eastbound Loop 202. The southbound Arizona 51 and westbound Loop 202 ramps to eastbound I-10 will remain open.

Detour: Eastbound I-10 traffic will detour south on I-17 and reconnect with I-10 near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Local drivers, including West Valley fans going to the Diamondbacks or Rattlers games Saturday night should consider alternate eastbound routes. Drivers can also use eastbound McDowell Road to southbound Arizona 51 to access I-10.

Interstate 10/Seventh Street and Seventh Avenue
Closure: Westbound Interstate 10 closed overnight between Seventh Street and Seventh Avenue from 9 p.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday for tunnel maintenance. Ramps from southbound Arizona 51 and westbound Loop 202 to westbound I-10 closed.

Detour: Westbound I-10 traffic can use northbound I-17 starting near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to avoid tunnel closure. Westbound I-10 traffic exiting at Seventh Street will detour beyond closure on McDowell Road.
