Drivers should expect delays and plan for detours

PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation is advising motorists to plan ahead and expect to use detours as eastbound I-10 will be closed between SR 51 and US 60 from 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27 to 4 a.m. Monday, Oct. 30 for a traffic shift. The following ramps will be closed at 9 p.m., one hour before the full closure begins. 

  • The eastbound I-10 ramps at Third, Seventh and Jefferson streets, Buckeye Road, 24th, 32nd and 40th streets and Broadway Road
  • The loop ramp from southbound SR 143 to eastbound I-10
  • The southbound I-17 on-ramps at Seventh Avenue and Seventh Street
  • The ramp from southbound I-17 to eastbound I-10
  • The westbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) ramp to eastbound I-10
  • The southbound SR 51 on-ramp at McDowell Road
  • The ramps from southbound SR 51 to eastbound I-10
  • The high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) ramp from eastbound I-10 to eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway)

Detour: Use eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) to southbound Loop 101 (Price Freeway) to westbound US 60 or westbound Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) to access eastbound I-10 beyond the closure. Drivers traveling on southbound I-17 can use westbound I-10 to eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway).

West Valley drivers heading to the Southeast Valley can bypass the closure by using the Loop 202 (South Mountain Freeway). From I-10 and 59th Avenue, travel south and east to connect with I-10 south of Chandler Boulevard. 

NOTE: When eastbound I-10 reopens on Monday, Oct. 30, drivers can expect a new lane configuration. The existing lanes between 48th Street and Broadway Road will be split and there will be a work zone in the middle of the lanes. There will be a roadway barrier separating crews within the work zone from the freeway traffic. There will be two lanes on one side of the work zone and three lanes on the other side. Drivers wishing to exit onto US 60 using the general purpose lanes are encouraged to move into the right three lanes before 48th Street. HOV lane access to eastbound US 60 will be unchanged.

Please note: Schedules can quickly change because of weather and other unforeseen situations.

The I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project is identified in the Maricopa Association of Governments’ Regional Transportation Plan, funded by a half-cent sales tax approved by Maricopa County voters in 2004 through Proposition 400. MAG identified the need for this project to reduce travel times on I-10 during peak hours; improve airport access; support ridesharing and transit; and prepare the region for future growth projections.
