Portions of I-10, I-19 in Arizona, I-15 in Vegas closed this weekend

Portions of I-10 near Phoenix, I-19 near Tucson and I-15 in Las Vegas will be closed for construction projects in the coming days.

The Arizona Department of Transportation will close I-10 West at 59th Avenue between 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, and 8 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 15. ADOT says the closure will allow a crane to place an 80-foot steel beam above I-10 for a flyover bridge.

Westbound traffic will be able to exit the interstate at the 59th Avenue off-ramp and re-enter at the 59th Avenue on-ramp, but delays are expected. ADOT suggests using Loop 101, west of I-17, as an alternate route.

Interstate 19 will close in both directions this weekend at Ajo Way (State Route 86) for a bridge construction project. The highway will be closed from 9 p.m Friday through 5 a.m. Monday. ADOT will direct traffic onto the SR 86 off-ramps and back onto I-19 on the SR 86 on-ramps. The ramp connecting westbound I-10 to southbound I-19 will also be closed during the same time period.

The Nevada DOT will close the northbound I-15 exit to the 215 Northern Beltway in North Las Vegas from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting the evening of Sunday, Oct. 15, and continuing through the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 17. The closure is part of an I-15 widening project.
