Several closures and lane restrictions will take place on Valley freeways for improvement projects this weekend (November 1-4), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Here is ADOT's Weekend Freeway Travel Advisory:

  • Westbound Interstate 10 closed between 35th and 67th avenues in west Phoenix from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (Nov. 4) for work on the Loop 202 Congressman Ed Pastor Freeway (formerly South Mountain Freeway) interchange. Both Interstate 17 ramps to westbound I-10 at the “Stack” interchange closed. Westbound I-10 on-ramp at 27th Avenue also closed. Expect heavy traffic and delays. DETOUR: Consider alternate routes including northbound I-17 to westbound Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) in the West Valley. Westbound I-10 drivers also should consider exiting ahead of the closure and using local detour routes, including westbound McDowell Road or Van Buren Street. Note: Westbound I-10 drivers in the Tucson/Casa Grande area with no plans to stop in Phoenix can avoid closure by detouring on westbound I-8 in Casa Grande to northbound SR 85 to reach westbound I-10 in Buckeye.

Eastbound US 60 on-ramps at Gilbert Road and Stapley Drive closed. DETOUR: Allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes while ramps are closed
