The Arizona Department of Transportation is asking drivers to plan ahead this weekend for closures and lane restrictions in the West Valley. 

Drivers can expect closures or lane restrictions along parts of Interstate 10 west of Loop 101 in the West Valley this weekend while ADOT makes some pavement improvements along the highway.

Motorists should consider alternate routes and allow extra travel time while the following I-10 or nearby Loop 303 restrictions are in place:

  • Westbound I-10 narrowed to one lane between Sarival Avenue and Perryville Road from 1 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday (Sept. 9) for barrier removal and rubberized asphalt paving. Westbound I-10 on-ramp at Citrus Road and off-ramp at Perryville Road closed. DETOUR: Please allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes.
  • Westbound I-10 closed between Dysart Road and Estrella Parkway from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 10) for pavement-improvement work. Westbound I-10 on-ramp at Avondale Boulevard also closed. DETOUR: Expect heavy delays. Consider exiting ahead of the closure and using alternate westbound routes, including McDowell Road or Van Buren Street. Westbound traffic exiting at Dysart Road also can detour to McDowell or Van Buren and re-enter I-10 at Estrella Parkway. Please allow extra travel time.
  •  Westbound I-10 ramp to northbound Loop 303 closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday (Sept. 8) and from 1 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 9) for rubberized asphalt paving. Westbound I-10 right lane closed between Sarival Avenue and Loop 303.

  • Southbound Loop 303 ramp to westbound I-10 closed from 10 p.m. Friday to 1 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 10) for rubberized asphalt paving. DETOUR: Access westbound I-10 by exiting southbound Loop 303 at Thomas Road and using southbound Cotton Lane, westbound McDowell Road and southbound Citrus Road to the I-10 on-ramp. NOTE: This ramp also will be closed 10 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday (Sept. 8).
