Truckers planning to travel westbound through Phoenix this weekend should make plans for an alternate route as the Arizona Department of Transportation will close a section of I-10 Westbound from 10 p.m. Friday, July 27, through 5 a.m. Sunday, July 29.
The interstate will be closed between 51st and 67th avenues for a bridge construction project on the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway. ADOT recommends drivers take Loop 101 west of I-17 as an alternate route.
During the closure, traffic can exit the interstate at 51st Avenue, detour either north to McDowell Road or south to Van Buren Street and return to I-10 at 67th Avenue. The new westbound I-10 access road will also remain open during construction.
