Sections of State Route 51 scheduled to close Monday, Tuesday nights

Sections of State Route 51 will be closed Monday and Tuesday nights as crews install new traffic-flow sensors, the Arizona Department of Transportation said.

Southbound SR-51 will close from 9 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday between Thomas and McDowell roads. The closure will also close the on-ramp heading southbound at Indian School Road. Drivers can avoid the closed roads by taking southbound 16th or 24th streets.

From Tuesday at 9 p.m. to Wednesday at 5 a.m., southbound SR-51 will be shut down between McDowell Road and the Interstate 10/Loop 202 mini-stack. Southbound SR-51’s on-ramp at Thomas will also be closed during Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.

The scheduled closures could be altered due to inclement weather.
