Stretches of southbound Interstate 17 in Phoenix will be closed during overnight hours this week (July 11-14) to allow crews to add permanent lane stripes on the freeway’s new layer of rubberized asphalt pavement.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says drivers should allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes while the following overnight closures are in place:

•    Southbound I-17 closed between Bethany Home and Camelback roads from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday (July 12) for permanent lane striping.

•    Southbound I-17 closed between Camelback and Indian School roads from 10 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday (July 13) for permanent lane striping. 

•    Southbound I-17 closed between Indian School and Thomas roads from 10 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday (July 14) for permanent lane striping. 

When each of the overnight closures is in place, drivers should consider alternate southbound routes, including State Route 51. Southbound I-17 traffic exiting the freeway also can use the southbound frontage road.
