Plan Your Weekend Ahead and Use Detours

The Arizona Department of Transportation says it will close Interstate I-10 in downtown Phoenix this weekend on the Eastbound section between SR 51 and US 60.

This section will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27 to 4 a.m. Monday, Oct. 30.

In addition, numerous ramps will be closed starting at 9 PM on Friday evening. These include.

  • 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
  • Southbound I-17 on-ramps at Seventh Avenue and Seventh Street
  • The ramp from southbound I-17 to eastbound I-10
  • Westbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) ramp to eastbound I-10
  • 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)

The AZ DOT suggests using the following detours:

  • 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 Loop 202 (South Mountain Freeway).
  • From I-10 and 59th Avenue, travel south and east to connect with I-10 south of Chandler Boulevard.

New Lanes Upon Reopening I-10

When eastbound I-10 reopens on Monday, Oct. 30, expect to see 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.
