We are in the home stretch now for projects widening Interstate 10 in Casa Grande and between Eloy and Picacho. When this work is done later this year, I-10 will be three lanes in each direction all the way between Casa Grande and Tucson, all thanks to improvements ADOT has made in recent years.

As we mentioned in a release this week about upcoming work, new eastbound lanes near the State Route 87 junction between Eloy and Picacho are expected to open in mid-June, with full completion of this project in the fall. Similar work between Early Road and Interstate 8 in Casa Grande is scheduled to wrap up by late summer.

We've been talking about these projects and what they mean for this busy corridor for a while now. So instead of repeating ourselves, we'll just show you where we are at. You can peruse all the ongoing bridge work happening on I-10 in Casa Grande (specifically, at Jimmie Kerr Drive and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks) in the top slideshow and then take a high-level peek at the new travel lanes and interchange near Eloy.

We hope you enjoy this look at both projects almost as much as you'll enjoy a wider I-10 in a few months.
