PHOENIX — A section of westbound Interstate 10 will be closed near Loop 101 in the West Valley this weekend (April 15-18) for an ongoing pavement improvement project, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Another section of I-10 westbound in the Tempe area will be restricted near Broadway Road for part of the weekend. Drivers should allow extra travel time, consider alternate routes as needed, and remain alert to work areas while the following weekend restrictions are in place:
- I-10 westbound closed between Loop 101 (Agua Fria Highway) and boulevard Avondale from Friday 9 p.m. to Monday 5 a.m. (April 18) for road improvement works. The southbound 101 Loop is also closed between Thomas Road and I-10. Both Loop 101 ramps southbound to I-10 (east and west direction) farm. I-10 westbound on-ramps from 75th to 107th Avenue closed. Southbound Loop 101 on-ramp closure at Indian School Road. DEVIATIONS: Drivers on I-10 westbound may consider exiting before closing and using alternate routes including McDowell Road or Van Buren Street. Due to anticipated congestion along McDowell Road, drivers on the southbound 101 Loop may consider exiting at Indian School Road and using local routes to reach I-10 beyond the ramp or freeway closures. To note: Westbound I-10 travelers in the Casa Grande area who do not plan to stop in Phoenix can avoid this closure by using westbound I-8 to northbound SR 85 to reach the I-10 in the Buckeye area.
- I-10 westbound reduced to three lanes between Broadway Road and SR 143/48th Street from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 p.m. Saturday (April 16) for bridge work as part of the I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project. HOV US 60 Westbound Ramp Closure to Westbound I-10. Westbound I-10 ramp to northbound SR 143 will remain open. DEVIATION: Allow extra travel time. Be prepared to slow down and merge safely as you approach and pass through all work areas.
ADOT plans and constructs new freeways, additional lanes, and other improvements in the Phoenix area as part of the regional transportation plan for the Maricopa County area. The projects are funded in part by Proposition 400, a dedicated sales tax approved by Maricopa County voters in 2004.
