Paving work, a road-widening project and preparation for a light rail bridge will require motorists to navigate closures and lane restrictions this weekend in several areas of the Valley.
The Arizona Department of Transportation has announced its weekend work schedule that begins Friday, Sept. 23, and ends Monday morning, Sept. 26
The westbound US 60 ramp to eastbound I-10 will be closed as will the eastbound I-10 on-ramps at 40th Street and Broadway Road. The eastbound I-10 on-ramp at Chandler Boulevard will remain open. Eastbound US 60 off- and on-ramps at Mill Avenue will be closed. Both HOV lane ramps at the I-10/US 60 interchange will be closed.
Detour: The alternate freeway route to avoid the closure is eastbound Loop 202 to southbound Loop 101 and westbound Loop 202 in the Chandler area.
Drivers also can use I-10 in the West Valley to southbound Loop 202 to reach I-10 beyond the closure.
Eastbound I-10 drivers approaching the closure can detour on eastbound US 60, southbound Loop 101 and westbound Loop 202. Southbound SR 143 traffic entering eastbound I-10 will be detoured to eastbound US 60.
Note: Northbound 40th Street will be closed between Broadway Road and I-10. Detour on northbound 48th Street/SR 143 to westbound University Drive.
Detour: Consider using northbound Loop 101 as an alternate freeway route.
Note: Crews plan to reopen sections of northbound Loop 303 as they work north to south on the pavement sealing.
