ADOT reopens SR 85 ramp in Buckeye

Posted

The Arizona Department of Transportation has reopened the reconstructed ramp connecting northbound SR 85 to westbound I-10 in Buckeye.

It took crews three weeks to complete the improvement work and reopen the ramp to traffic late Friday night, Sept. 30.

ADOT also reopened the upgraded ramp that connects eastbound I-10 to southbound SR 85.

A third ramp in the area, connecting westbound I-10 to southbound SR 85, also will be improved starting early next year, according to ADOT.

The ramp work is part of the state’s $82 million project to widen an 8-mile stretch of I-10 between Verrado Way and SR 85, scheduled for completion in summer 2023. 

In addition to third lanes being added in both directions along the freeway, the I-10 interchange at Watson Road will be reconstructed as a diverging diamond interchange. The Miller Road interchange was modernized into a diverging diamond earlier this year, ADOT officials said in a release.

A next phase of work, which will require the temporary closures of the westbound I-10 off- and on-ramps at Watson Road, is slated to begin in mid-October.
