Demolition of I-10 bridges over Perryville Road underway west of Phoenix

April 24, 2014

PHOENIX – Work to demolish the existing Interstate 10 bridges over Perryville Road in the West Valley is underway this week as part of a project to construct a new freeway interchange in the Goodyear area, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Crews demolish I-10 bridges over Perryville RoadThe demolition and removal of the older bridges is expected to take several days to complete before crews begin the construction of new, longer bridges over Perryville Road, which is west of the future I-10/Loop 303 interchange also being built in Goodyear.

To allow for the construction of the new bridges over Perryville Road, I-10 traffic was switched this week to newly constructed detour routes along the paths of the future off- and on-ramps for the interchange.

The detour routes still provide drivers with three lanes in each direction as they travel along the ramps. The speed limit in the area is 55 mph. Perryville Road is temporarily closed between McDowell Road and Van Buren Street to allow I-10 traffic to move freely along the construction detours. Citrus Road and Jackrabbit Trail are alternate north-south routes for local traffic.

I-10 traffic will be using the detour routes until September while crews build the new bridges.

The $18.8 million I-10/Perryville Road interchange project is scheduled for completion this fall.
