Traveling around the Valley this weekend? There are a couple road closures you need to know about. 

Latest from ADOT:

Southbound Interstate 17 closed between Thomas Road and Interstate 10 at the “Stack” interchange from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (June 12) for rubberized asphalt paving. All north- and southbound I-17 ramps connecting to I-10 at the Stack closed. However, the I-10 ramps connecting to I-17 (both directions) will remain open. The northbound I-17 HOV lane between McDowell and Thomas roads closed. DETOUR: Consider alternate southbound routes, including State Route 51 to I-10. Southbound I-17 traffic exiting at Thomas Road can use the southbound frontage road or 19th or 27th avenues, but expect heavy traffic and delays. NOTE: Westbound Thomas Road narrowed to one lane at I-17 for bridge fence replacement.

State Route 143 (Hohokam Expressway) closed in both directions between McDowell Road and Washington Street from 4 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. Sunday (June 11) for Cox Communications overhead utility line work. DETOUR: Northbound SR 143 traffic will detour to westbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) and can exit at 32nd Street. Drivers who normally would use southbound SR 143 from McDowell Road can consider using southbound 48th Street.
