PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5/ADOT) -

Freeway improvement work in the Phoenix area will require Interstate 10 closures or lane restrictions in two locations this weekend (June 8-11), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at az511.gov, by calling 511 and through ADOT’s Twitter feed, @ArizonaDOT.

When a freeway closure or other major traffic event occurs, our free app available at ADOTAlerts.com will send critical information directly to app users in affected areas – where possible, in advance of alternate routes.

[MAP: ADOT's Weekend Freeway Travel Advisory (June 8-11)]

Drivers should allow extra travel time, use caution and consider alternate routes while the following freeway restrictions are in place this weekend:

  • Westbound Interstate 10 closed between 51st and 67th avenues in west Phoenix from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 p.m. Sunday (June 10) for bridge construction at the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway interchange. Westbound I-10 on-ramps at 35th and 43rd avenues also closed. DETOUR: Please consider alternate routes, including westbound and southbound Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway).
  • Interstate 10 narrowed to one lane in both directions overnight between the Gila River Bridge and State Route 587 (Casa Blanca Road) south of Chandler from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday nights (June 10-13) for lane-striping work. I-10 on- and off-ramps at State Route 587 also restricted at times. DETOUR: Please allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes. I-10 travelers who don’t plan to stop in the Phoenix area should consider using Interstate 8 and State Route 85 (west of Phoenix) as an alternate route to avoid the I-10 restrictions. Please use caution in work zones.

Any additional freeway-restriction information will be posted at azdot.gov, under ADOT News. Visit the site to also subscribe to ADOT email updates, including future weekend restriction information.
