Southbound Interstate 17 closed between Indian School Road and Grant Street this weekend; several ramps closed at the “Stack”

Drivers should use alternate routes and expect delays

The Arizona Department of Transportation is repaving I-17 in Phoenix between Indian School Road and Grant Street this weekend, beginning Friday night and continuing until early Monday, May 22. As part of the work, several ramps along I-17 will be closed. Ramps at the I-10/ I-17 “Stack” interchange will also be closed. Drivers should allow extra travel time and consider using alternate routes including southbound State Route 51 or Loop 101.

Construction activities are scheduled from 10 p.m. Friday, May 19, to 5 a.m. Monday, May 22, and include:

Southbound I-17 will be closed for resurfacing between Indian School Road and Grant Street. Detour: Use the I-17 frontage road to Grant Street.
McDowell Road will be closed in both directions at I-17 for fence replacement. Detour: Use the I-17 frontage road to either Van Buren Street or Thomas Road.
The ramps from southbound I-17 to east- and westbound I-10 will be closed. Detour: Use Thomas Road to either 19th or 27th avenues.
The ramps from east- and westbound I-10 to southbound I-17 will be closed. Detour: Use I-10 as an alternate route.
The northbound I-17 left (HOV) lane will be closed between Van Buren Street and Thomas Road for fence installation work.

ADOT is continuing the project to repave I-17 with smooth, durable rubberized asphalt between Dunlap and 19th avenues. Crews have completed work on the northbound lanes and plan to finish work on the southbound lanes over weekends through July. No work is scheduled over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, however.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment. For more information about this project, please visit azdot.gov/I17pavementpreservation, call the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or email Projects@azdot.gov.
