PHOENIX — The ramp connecting westbound Interstate 10 to eastbound U.S. 60 in Tempe will be closed overnight Thursday for pre-construction survey work.

The closure will begin at 8 p.m. Thursday and last until 4 a.m. Friday, with the on-ramp from Baseline Road to westbound I-10 also being closed during those hours, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Drivers on westbound I-10 can reach U.S. 60 by continuing past U.S. 60 and exiting I-10 at Broadway Road before turning left at the overpass and entering eastbound I-10 then continuing on to U.S. 60.

Surface streets can also be used to access eastbound U.S. 60 via Priest Drive, while access to westbound I-10 can be reached via Elliot or Broadway roads or 40th Street. Those who want to reach northbound State Route 143 should use 48th Street.

The pre-construction survey work is related to the I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project, which involves multiple improvements between Loop 202 and Interstate 17.

The project will replace the I-10 interchange at SR 143, modify I-10 connections at Broadway Road and U.S. 60 to improve traffic flow and safety, construct collector-distributor roads between 40th Street and Baseline Road as well as add two bridges for pedestrians and bicyclists over I-10 between Baseline and Broadway roads and improve the Sun Circle Trail crossing at Guadalupe Road.

Construction on the project is set to begin later this year and continue until late 2024, according to ADOT.
