Good news for drivers!

Interstate 10 westbound has reopened ahead of schedule from 43rd to 59th avenues, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The closure, which facilitated construction on the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway interchange, ended earlier than expected after workers finished ahead of schedule. The freeway was not due to reopen until 5 a.m. on Monday.
