TEMPE, AZ — The US 60 near McClintock Drive in Tempe fully reopened late Sunday night, weeks after a water main break shut down the freeway.

The westbound lanes reopened at approximately 10 p.m. Sunday night, following the completion of concrete paving and other work, according to ADOT.

Both directions of US 60 were closed earlier this month due to a water main break.
