Drivers should allow extra travel time, use caution and consider alternate routes for these weekend freeway restrictions in the Phoenix area:

  • Eastbound Interstate 10 closed between 59th and 43rd avenues from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Sunday (Feb. 11) for construction at the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway interchange. Eastbound I-10 on-ramps at 75th and 67th avenues also closed. DETOUR: Please consider alternate routes, including Loop 101 in the west and north Valley areas. Consider exiting eastbound I-10 ahead of the closure and using local routes. Eastbound I-10 traffic exiting at 59th Avenue can detour to Van Buren Street or McDowell Road, but drivers should expect heavy traffic and delays. NOTE: The eastbound I-10 on-ramp at 51st Avenue will remain closed from Saturday (Feb. 10) to Saturday (March 17) for construction.
  • Southbound Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) on-ramp at Olive Avenue closed from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (Feb. 12) for pavement improvements. Olive Avenue also narrowed in both directions (alternating lane closures) between 91st and 93rd avenues near Loop 101. DETOUR: Please allow extra travel time and consider using other nearby southbound Loop 101 on-ramps, including those at Peoria or Northern avenues.
  • US 60 (Superstition Freeway) will have heavier weekend traffic at times in the Apache Junction and Gold Canyon areas through April 1 while the Renaissance Festival is underway. DETOUR: Please allow extra travel time and be prepared for slow traffic. Use caution, especially near festival parking lot access points.
