You may want to start planning an alternate route if your travel State Route 51 early this week.
The Piestewa Freeway is scheduled to close overnight Monday and Tuesday so crews can install new traffic-flow sensors, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Drivers should consider changing their routes to include southbound Interstate 17 or 16th and 24th streets, while the closures are in place.
Southbound SR 51 will be closed overnight between Thomas and McDowell roads from 9 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday (Jan. 24).
The southbound SR 51 on-ramp at Indian School Road will also close.
DETOUR: Consider exiting ahead of the closure and using alternate routes including southbound 16th or 24th streets.
