Crews to repave roadway

PHOENIX -- If your weekend plans include travel along Interstate 17, you'd better be aware of a big closure.

The southbound lanes between Thunderbird Road and Dunlap Avenue will be shut down for some more roadwork.

ADOT crews are working on repaving the roadway to help make it smoother for commuters.

The closure starts Friday at 9 p.m. and runs until Monday at 5 a.m.

There will be other closures along the freeway for the next several weeks.
