PHOENIX - More closures and restrictions go into effect for several Phoenix-area freeways this weekend, so drivers will need to plan ahead:
In the downtown Phoenix area, the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 will be closed between State Route 51 (the Mini Stack) and US 60 from 10 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday, June 27 for work on a bridge and for the Broadway Curve Improvement Project.
The following ramps will be closed:
- Southbound SR 51 and westbound Loop 202 ramps to I-10 EB
- Southbound SR 143 ramp to I-10 EB
- I-17 southbound on-ramps at 7th Avenue, 7th Street
Alternate routes: Drivers can detour on Loop 202 near I-10/SR-51 and head east to Loop 101 Price southbound, then take US 60 or Loop 202 Santan west to get back on I-10.
In Buckeye, the westbound I-10 off-ramp and eastbound on-ramp at Watson Road will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for utility work.
The eastbound lanes of SR 24 are closed between Loop 202 Santan and Ellsworth Road from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 25 for pavement work.
