If you are traveling around the Valley this weekend, you are in luck. There is only one construction job that is impacting traffic. 


Here is the latest information from ADOT: 

Southbound I-17 narrowed to two lanes near Seventh Avenue (south of downtown Phoenix) from 2 a.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday (Dec. 18) for bridge work. Seventh Avenue also closed in both directions at I-17.

I-17 traffic exiting at Seventh Avenue will not be able to make left turns onto Seventh Avenue. DETOUR: Please allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes, including eastbound Interstate 10 in the downtown area. Alternate routes while Seventh Avenue is closed include Central Avenue, 19th Avenue or Seventh Street.

NOTE: Southbound I-17 will be narrowed temporarily to one lane near Seventh Avenue at the start and end of the restrictions listed above while crews set up and remove barrier walls. Please be prepared to slow down and use caution in work zones.
