Phoenix-area freeway closures, restrictions this weekend: What to know for Feb. 17-20

The Arizona Dept. of Transportation put a hold on freeway projects for the Super Bowl weekend, but they're back again.

Watch out for these closures across the Valley this weekend:


In north Phoenix, the northbound lanes of Interstate 17 will be shut down between Thunderbird and Union Hills Drive starting at 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.

The following ramps will be closed:

  • I-17 NB on-ramps at Northern, Dunlap, Peoria, Cactus
  • I-17 NB ramps to Loop 101 (both directions)

Alternate routes: ADOT recommends taking SR 51 to Loop 101 westbound to get around the closure. 19th or 35th Avenue can also be used to access Loop 101 or I-17 past the closure.

US 60

The eastbound lanes of US 60 will be shut down between Higley and Loop 202 at the "SuperRedTan" interchange from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.

The eastbound on-ramps at Val Vista and Greenfield Road will be closed.

Alternate routes: Drivers can take Loop 202 Red Mountain or Santan instead. Surface streets like Baseline Road can be used to get past the closure.


The eastbound lanes will be closed between US 60 and Loop 202 Santan starting at 10 p.m. Friday until 10 p.m. Saturday.

The westbound lanes will be restricted to two lanes near Broadway Road.

  • HOV ramps between I-10 and US 60

Alternate routes

  • Taking Loop 202 EB at the I-10/SR 51 Mini-Stack to Loop 101 Price Freeway, then head south to Loop 202 Santan in Chandler. I-10 drivers detouring onto US 60 can also take Loop 101 southbound to Loop 202 to get around.
  • If in the west Valley, drivers can use Loop 202 South Mountain to get around the closure.


I-10 westbound will be restricted to three lanes near Chandler Boulevard.

Guadalupe Road will be closed in both directions near I-10 from 10 p.m. Friday to 10 p.m. Saturday.
