I-10, SR 85 Verrado Fact Sheet

Reconstructed interchanges at Miller and Watson roads to feature Diverging Diamond design

An Arizona Department of Transportation project to widen Interstate 10 between State Route 85 and Verrado Way in the city of Buckeye and construct new interchanges at Miller and Watson roads is slated to get underway in July 2021.

The project includes adding a third general purpose lane in each direction on I-10 and reconstructing the interchanges at Miller Road and Watson Road to a Diverging Diamond design. 

These improvements will increase freeway capacity, improve traffic flow and safety at the interchanges and accommodate future growth in the city of Buckeye. 

What to expect during construction:

  • Construction will require periodic restrictions and closures on I-10, interchange ramps and the cross streets at Watson and Miller roads.
  • To minimize impacts to drivers and businesses during construction of the interchanges, only one interchange will be constructed at a time, with the Miller Road interchange to be constructed first.  
  • Restrictions and closures will be minimized to the extent possible to lessen impacts.
  • ADOT will provide advance notice about specific lane restrictions or closures as they become available.
