In the West Valley, eastbound Interstate 10 will be closed between 107th and 99th avenues from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for freeway lane striping and sign work.

The lane striping changes will allow a second eastbound I-10 lane to travel onto the ramp to northbound Loop 101, which currently only has a one-lane connection.

Other restrictions will accompany the I-10 closure.

The eastbound I-10 on-ramp at Avondale Boulevard and westbound I-10 HOV lane between 91st and 107th avenues will be closed during those times.

The westbound I-10 ramp to northbound Loop 101 will also be narrowed to one lane.

In Chandler, the eastbound I-10 ramps to the Loop 202 Santan and South Mountain freeways will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday to 7 p.m. Saturday for construction.

The right two lanes of the eastbound I-10 between Ray Road and Loop 202 will also be closed.

In Tempe, both U.S. 60 ramps to the southbound Loop 101 Price Freeway will be closed from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday for a widening project.

Loop 101 will be narrowed to two lanes in areas between U.S. 60 and Ray Road during that time.

The northbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Warner Road and off-ramp at Elliot Road will also be closed from 10 p.m. Friday until late March for construction.

In the northwest Valley, northbound Loop 303 will be closed from El Mirage Road to Happy Valley Parkway from 10 p.m. Friday to noon Saturday and from Happy Valley Parkway to Lone Mountain Parkway from 10 p.m. Saturday to noon Sunday for installation of traffic flow sensors.

Additionally, the southbound Loop 303 on-ramp at El Mirage Road will be closed from 9 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday.

In west Phoenix, the right two lanes of eastbound I-10 will be closed between 43rd and 27th avenues from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday for maintenance.

The eastbound I-10 on-ramp at 43rd Avenue will also be closed.

In the East Valley, eastbound U.S. 60 will be narrowed to two lanes in areas between Gilbert and Crismon roads from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night from Sunday through Thursday for pavement improvement work.

Finally, the westbound I-10 off-ramp at Miller Road in Buckeye will be closed from 8 p.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Sunday for pavement repairs.
