PHOENIX — A portion of the northbound Interstate 17 in Phoenix will be shut down during the weekend of May 12 for pavement repairs.
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the I-17 will be closed between Glendale and Dunlap avenues in Phoenix, starting at 10 p.m. on Friday to 5 a.m. on Monday.
The freeway will be closed to allow crews to add a new layer of “smooth, durable rubberized asphalt,” the department said in a press release.
