The Arizona Department of Transportation advises motorists who travel on State Route 24 Gateway Freeway to plan for a ramp closure as work continues on the project to extend SR24 approximately 5 miles from Ellsworth Road to Ironwood Drive.
The westbound SR24 on-ramp at Ellsworth Road will be closed from 8 p.m. Monday, July 11, to 5 a.m. Tuesday, July 12.
For a detour, drivers can travel north on Ellsworth Road and access Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway via westbound Elliot Road or by using westbound Ray Road to northbound Hawes Road.
