Westbound I-10 to close west of downtown Phoenix late Friday night

Closure for South Mountain Freeway bridge work to be lifted by noon Saturday

Motorists traveling to the West Valley this weekend should allow extra travel time and plan ahead to avoid a closure of westbound Interstate 10 (Papago Freeway) at 59th Avenue for construction of the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Westbound I-10 at 59th Avenue will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3 to noon Saturday, Nov. 4. The closure will allow crews to pour concrete on a straddle bent structure above I-10 that will support a flyover bridge.

During the closure, westbound I-10 traffic will be able to exit the freeway at the 59th Avenue off-ramp and re-enter at the 59th Avenue on-ramp, but delays are likely.



The westbound I-10 on-ramps at 43rd and 51st avenues will be closed as well to help reduce traffic backups.

To avoid delays on westbound I-10, motorists should consider alternate routes, including the Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) west of Interstate 17, or exiting I-10 sooner and taking local streets to re-enter past the closure point.

In addition, southbound 59th Avenue between McDowell Road to Roosevelt Avenue will be closed for utility work from 3 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 4. Motorists should consider Van Buren Street or 51st and 67th avenues as alternate routes.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
