Westbound I-10 on-ramp at Sunshine Boulevard in Eloy to close next week for paving
August 24, 2011
The westbound Interstate 10 on-ramp at Sunshine Boulevard (exit 208) will be closed for 60 consecutive hours for paving as part of the project to widen I-10 from State Route 87 to Interstate 8. Crews will work around the clock from 7 p.m. Tuesday (August 23) to 6 a.m. Friday (August 26) to complete the work.
The following detour will be available during the ramp closure:
Motorists on Sunshine Boulevard wishing to access westbound I-10 will be directed to enter eastbound I-10 at Sunshine Boulevard, exit at the State Route 87 (exit 211B) off-ramp that loops to the right, then turn left just after the underpass to re-enter I-10 heading westbound.
What to expect during the closure:
- The westbound I-10 off-ramp at Sunshine Boulevard will remain open.
- Signage will inform drivers of restrictions and detours.
- Detours may cause delays of up to 15 minutes.
- Drivers should proceed through the detours with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
Ramp improvements at the Sunshine Boulevard Interchange (exit 208) in Eloy are part of the Interstate 10 widening project between Picacho and Casa Grande. This $31.3 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act project is anticipated to be completed in spring 2012.
The project schedule is subject to change due to a variety of reasons, including weather, material availability and mechanical difficulties.
