PHOENIX — Drivers planning to use interstates 10 and 17 can expect a break from restrictions approaching the holiday season.

In order to limit restrictions including full freeway closures, the Arizona Department of Transportation announced an increase of construction work on the freeways prior to the holidays to accommodate traveling drivers between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.

Drivers can expect additional closures or lane restrictions along I-10 near 59th Avenue for work on the Loop 202 interchange over the next few weeks.

Bridge inspections are planned at the I-10/I-17 “Stack” interchange near downtown Phoenix.

Crews are also working on installing traffic-flow sensors in the pavement and electronic message signs above the I-10 near the Loop 303 in Goodyear.

ADOT will postpone major freeway restrictions in the West Valley from Nov. 8-11, during the NASCAR race weekend at ISM Raceway.
