The Arizona Department of Transportation tweeted me saying, "We're taking it easy on construction because of extra traffic this weekend from the Final Four."

And for that, I think we all can respond with: "Thank you ADOT!"

The I-10 ramps to and from Pecos Road will be closed for South Mountain Freeway work, and at this point, that's the only closure scheduled for March 31st to April 3rd. And no, this is not an April Fools' prank.

Here's the specific information about the closure:

All Interstate 10 ramps to and from Pecos Road closed from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (April 3) for a traffic shift as part of the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway construction project. Pecos Road also closed between 24th Street and I-10. No access from westbound Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) to Pecos Road. DETOUR: Please plan to use alternate routes, including Chandler Boulevard or Ray Road for access to or from I-10.
