The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) announced three improvement projects that will require closures along Phoenix-area freeways this weekend (July 7–10). Drivers should allow extra travel time and plan detour routes while the following weekend restrictions are in place:

  • Northbound Interstate 17 closed between Northern Avenue and Greenway Road from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (July 10) for pavement improvement project. Northbound I-17 on-ramps at Bethany Home Road and Glendale Avenue closed. Expect heavy traffic and allow extra travel time.
    • Detours: Consider using northbound State Route 51 to westbound Loop 101 to travel beyond closure. Northbound I-17 drivers also can consider exiting ahead of the closure and using northbound 19th Avenue.
  • Eastbound US 60 (Superstition Freeway) closed between I-10 and Loop 101 (Price Freeway) from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (July 10) for pavement improvement project. I-10 ramps to eastbound US 60 closed. Allow extra travel time.
    • Detours: Consider using eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) to southbound Loop 101 (Price Freeway) in Tempe or eastbound Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) to northbound Loop 101 to reach US 60 beyond closure. Drivers also can consider using eastbound Baseline or Broadway roads to travel beyond closure.
  • Westbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) closed between Loop 101 (Price Freeway) and Van Buren/52nd streets in Phoenix from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (July 10) for pavement improvement project. Both Loop 101 ramps to westbound Loop 202 closed.
    • Detours: Consider using southbound Loop 101 to westbound US 60 and westbound I-10 to travel beyond Loop 202 closure. Local traffic can consider using westbound McDowell Road.
