PHOENIX -- A crash has closed eastbound US 60 (Grand Avenue) at 99th Avenue, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Eastbound US 60 traffic is being diverted onto either northbound or southbound 99th Avenue due to the crash.
 
Drivers should expect the closure to remain in place through Thursday morning’s commute and avoid the area due to very long eastbound delays. Commuters from locations such as Surprise and the Sun Cities should consider alternate routes, including eastbound Bell Road to Loop 101 southbound.
