PHOENIX — If you are planning to drive on Interstate 10, make sure to plan ahead as numerous closures are causing restrictions over the weekend.

The Arizona Department of Transportation announced that the I-10 would be shut down in certain areas as crews install overhead signage and traffic-flow sensors as well as conduct bridge inspection.

The westbound I-10 will be closed between 43rd and 67th avenues from 10 p.m. on Friday to 5 a.m. on Monday as crews shift traffic lanes for construction of the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway interchange.

“The traffic lanes are actually going to be shifted to the outside or the right side along the westbound freeway so that work can continue toward the middle of the I-10 freeway as work continues on the South Mountain Interchange,” ADOT spokesman Doug Nintzel told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Thursday.

In addition, both of the Interstate 17 ramps leading to westbound I-10 at the “Stack” interchange will be closed as well as the westbound I-10 ramps at 27th and 35th avenues.

Motorists should consider alternate routes such as westbound and southbound Loop 101 west of the I-17.

The eastbound I-10 lanes will be closed at Perryville Road in Goodyear from 10 p.m. on Friday to noon on Saturday for the installation of overhead signage and traffic-flow sensors.

The eastbound I-10 on-ramp at Jackrabbit Trail will also be shut down.

To avoid any closures, ADOT recommends taking a detour along the off- and on-ramps at Perryville Road.

The eastbound I-10 will be closed between Citrus Road and Sarival Avenue from 10 p.m. on Saturday to noon on Sunday as crews work on installing overheard message signage and traffic-flow sensors.

The northbound and southbound Loop 303 ramps to eastbound I-10 will also be closed as well as the eastbound I-10 ramp at Perryville Road.

To avoid any delays, motorists can exit at Citrus Road and use the eastbound frontage road to the eastbound on-ramp at Sarival Avenue.

The eastbound I-10 HOV lanes will be closed between 27th and 19th avenues near the I-17 “Stack” interchange from 10 p.m. on Friday to 6 p.m. on Saturday for bridge inspection.

ADOT also warned drivers of intermittent closures of ramps and frontage roads at the interchange taking place between 10 p.m. on Friday to 5 a.m. on Wednesday. The individual closures could take up to three hours so plan ahead if driving in the area.
