PHOENIX — Portions of Interstate 17, Loop 101 and Interstate 10 are set to be closed this weekend.

In Phoenix, southbound I-17 will be closed between Thunderbird Road and Peoria Avenue from 4:30 a.m. Saturday to 4 a.m. Sunday for a maintenance and repair project, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

On-ramps to the highway at Greenway, Thunderbird and Cactus roads will also closed.

The project will also result in the closure of northbound I-17 at Peoria Avenue and Cactus Road from 4:30 a.m. Sunday to 4 a.m. Monday.

Northbound I-17 on-ramps at Peoria and Dunlap avenues are also closed.

In northeast Phoenix, the eastbound Loop 101 Pima Freeway will be closed between 56th Street and Scottsdale Road from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for a widening project.

The northbound SR 51 ramp to eastbound Loop 101 as well as the eastbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Tatum Boulevard will both be closed.

Near downtown Phoenix, eastbound I-10 will be closed between the I-17 Stack interchange and the SR 51/Loop 202 interchange from 9 p.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday for I-10 tunnel cleaning and maintenance.

Both I-17 ramps to eastbound I-10 at the Stack, eastbound on-ramps from 19th Avenue to Seventh Street and the 3rd Street HOV on-ramp will also be closed.

Southbound SR 51 and westbound Loop 202 ramps to eastbound I-10 will remain open.

Westbound I-10 between the I-17 Split interchange near Sky Harbor Airport and Seventh Avenue will also be closed due to the project from 9 p.m. Saturday to 9 a.m. Sunday.

The southbound SR 51 ramp to westbound I-10 and the westbound Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway ramp to westbound I-10 will remain open, however, traffic must exit I-10 at Seventh Street.

The westbound Sky Harbor Boulevard ramp to westbound I-10 will be open but traffic can only access northbound SR 51 or eastbound Loop 202.

In Tempe, the eastbound U.S. 60 on-ramp at Priest Drive in Tempe will be closed from 2 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 4 a.m to 5 p.m. Sunday for pre-construction survey work.

The eastbound U.S. 60 right lane and auxiliary lane between Priest and Hardy drives will also be closed.

Pre-construction survey work in Tempe will also result in westbound I-10 being narrowed to three lanes with the HOV and left lane closed between the Broadway Road exit and 48th Street from 3 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 3:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, as well as the southbound SR 143 being narrowed to one lane with the left two lanes closed south of University Drive from 2 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
