Weekend travelers, beware: parts of Interstate 10 near downtown Phoenix will be closed for scheduled maintenance in the Deck Park tunnel. However, the planned closures are only expected to occur mostly during the night.

In addition to the Deck Park tunnel closures, there will be restrictions along the westbound Loop 202 between McDowell and Gilbert roads in Mesa.

The Arizona Department of Transportation urges drivers to consider alternate routes, and to allow extra travel time during these areas.

Here are the scheduled restrictions:

• Eastbound Interstate 10 closed between the I-17 “Stack” interchange and State Route 51 from 9 p.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday (Nov. 5) for tunnel maintenance. Both of the Interstate 17 ramps to the eastbound Interstate 10 at the “Stack” will be closed.

• Westbound Interstate 10 closed between the I-17 “Split” interchange — near Sky Harbor Airport — and Seventh Avenue from 9 p.m. Saturday to 9 a.m. Sunday (Nov. 6). Southbound State Route 51 ramp to the westbound Interstate 10 will also be closed.

The westbound Interstate 10 on-ramp at Verrado Way and westbound off- and on-ramps at Watson Road will also be closed throughout Saturday (Nov. 5).

• Grand Avenue (U.S. 60) closed in both directions overnight between Dysart and Litchfield Roads from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights (Nov. 4-5) for installation of fencing on future Bell Road over pass and painting.
