Before you head out this weekend, make a note of these construction projects from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), so you can avoid the traffic tie-ups:

*Westbound Interstate 10 closed overnight between Seventh Street and Seventh Avenue from 9 p.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday (August 5) for tunnel maintenance. Ramps from southbound State Route 51 and westbound Loop 202 to westbound I-10 closed. DETOUR: Westbound I-10 traffic can use northbound I-17 starting near Sky Harbor Airport to avoid tunnel closure. Westbound I-10 traffic exiting at Seventh Street will detour beyond closure on McDowell Road.

*Eastbound Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) ramp to southbound State Route 51 closed from 11 p.m. Friday to 3 p.m. Saturday (August 4) for sign installation. DETOUR: Consider alternate southbound routes. Please allow extra travel time.

*Southbound State Route 51 (Piestewa Freeway) narrowed to one lane between Bell Road and Shea Boulevard from 11 p.m. Friday to 3 p.m. Saturday (August 4) for sign installation. Southbound SR 51 off-ramp at Bell Road closed. DETOUR: Please allow extra travel time and be prepared to merge safely in work zone.

*Southbound State Route 51 narrowed to one lane between Shea Boulevard and Northern Avenue from 10 p.m. Saturday to 3 p.m. Sunday (August 5) for sign installation. DETOUR: Please allow extra travel time and be prepared to merge safely in work zone.
