Plan for closures of sections of westbound I-10, southbound I-17

PHOENIX – Stretches of Interstate 10 and Interstate 17 in Phoenix will be closed this weekend (Nov. 10-13) for improvement projects managed by the Arizona Department of Transportation and Valley Metro. Drivers should consider using alternate routes if necessary while the following weekend closures are in place:

  • Westbound I-10 closed between Seventh Street and Seventh Avenue north of downtown Phoenix from 10 p.m. Friday to 10 a.m. Sunday (Nov. 12) for scheduled bridge inspection work at the I-10 tunnel. Southbound SR 51 and westbound Loop 202 ramps to westbound I-10 at the “Mini-Stack” interchange closed. Westbound I-10 on-ramp at 16th Street closed. Westbound Loop 202 on-ramps at 32nd and 24th streets closed. Detours: Consider using northbound I-17 starting at the “Split” interchange near Sky Harbor Airport to reach I-10 beyond the closure. Drivers exiting westbound I-10 at Seventh Street can use westbound McDowell Road or Van Buren Street to Seventh Avenue.
  • Southbound I-17 closed between Peoria and Dunlap avenues from 10 p.m. Friday to 10 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 12) for Valley Metro’s light rail bridge construction project. Southbound I-17 on-ramps at Greenway, Thunderbird and Cactus roads closed. Southbound I-17 frontage road closed between Peoria and Dunlap avenues. Detours: Loop 101 to southbound State Route 51 is an alternate freeway route to the Sky Harbor Airport area. Southbound I-17 drivers also can consider exiting ahead of the closure and using southbound 19th or 35th avenues to travel beyond closure.
  • Westbound I-10 ramp to northbound SR 143 (Hohokam Expressway) closed from 3 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 12) for the I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project. Detours: Consider alternate routes including westbound I-10 to eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) to reach southbound SR 143. Sky Harbor Airport access: Consider exiting westbound I-10 to northbound 24th Street or eastbound Buckeye Road to enter the airport from the west.

Schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather or other factors. 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 region. Most projects are funded in part by Proposition 400, a dedicated sales tax approved by Maricopa County voters in 2004.

Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at az511.gov, the az511 app or by calling 511.
