Plan ahead for weekend closure of Interstate 17 northbound between 19th Avenue and McDowell Road

Consider using westbound I-10 in downtown area as alternate route

The Arizona Department of Transportation is continuing work on a major project to add a new layer of smooth, durable rubberized asphalt to Interstate 17 in Phoenix. The resurfacing is being accomplished through a series of weekend closures in areas between Dunlap Avenue in north Phoenix and 19th Avenue southwest of the downtown area. Drivers are asked to plan ahead for this weekend’s closure and consider alternate routes to avoid anticipated traffic delays.

Northbound I-17 will be closed between 19th Avenue and McDowell Road from 10 p.m. Friday, April 14, to 5 a.m. Monday, April 17. Drivers should consider using westbound Interstate 10 as an alternate freeway route in the downtown Phoenix area. The left lane of southbound I-17 will be closed between McDowell Road and Van Buren Street.

Please note that Van Buren Street also will be closed in both directions at I-17 this weekend (10 p.m.Friday to 5 a.m. Monday). Heavier traffic also can be expected on McDowell Road near I-17. Consider using Thomas or Camelback roads as alternate east-west routes this weekend.

Drivers should use caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment in work zones. This weekend’s work is part of ADOT’s $9.8 million I-17 Improvement Project between Dunlap and 19th avenues. No restrictions or closures will be scheduled over the Memorial Day holiday weekend in May.

For more information about this project, please visit, call the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or email

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions and closures, but it’s possible that unscheduled impacts might occur because of weather or other factors.
