PHOENIX -- A serious crash has closed Interstate 17 southbound at New River, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. All southbound traffic must exit at New River Road.
The crash, along with an earlier crash near Anthem Way, has created delays northbound and southbound in the area. ADOT advises drivers to plan for extended travel times or to delay travel until southbound I-17 reopens.
There is no estimated time to reopen southbound I-17. Both northbound I-17 lanes are open, but traffic is slow.
