I-10 ramp closed; New interstate proposed; Cameras coming down

Posted: Updated:

The eastbound ramp from northbound Mission Road to Starr Pass Boulevard connecting to Interstate-10 closed at 6 am Tuesday.

Crews are improving that intersection.

You should use Silverlake Road to access I-10. Lanes on Starr Pass will be shifted for about 60 days.

And a new north-south running interstate has been proposed for the western U.S.

Interstate-11 would link the Phoenix area with several other states. The plan would be to build the I-11 southbound to the Arizona-Mexico border and also northbound through Nevada into Oregon and all the way up to Seattle.

A legislative committee in Nevada recently approved a resolution calling for the creation of the interstate. The money to pay for the project however has yet to be identified.

And Arizona's freeway cameras have been off for more than a month, but now those traffic cameras on Phoenix freeways are coming down.

Redflex Traffic Systems, which owns the cameras, plans to start taking them down after the holiday weekend.

All of the cameras should be down by the end November.

The state ended its contract with Redflex in July.
