Westbound Interstate 10 to close late Thursday night to move heavy equipment Work is part of South Mountain Freeway to construct piers at future interchange
The closure will last for approximately three hours between 11 p.m. Thursday, April 27, and 5 a.m. Friday, April 28, when westbound traffic will exit and re-enter I-10 via ramps at 59th Avenue. Drivers should allow extra travel time.
Limited closures of westbound I-10 between 51st and 67th avenues will be needed for the next few weeks as the equipment is moved from one location to another to begin work on the bridge structures that will carry traffic over I-10 when the South Mountain Freeway opens by late 2019.
