PHOENIX– Passengers traveling on Interstate 10 between Verrado Way and State Route 85 near Buckeye can expect overnight restrictions beginning Sunday night as part of an $82 million widening project.

The project will add a third lane in each direction on the eight-mile stretch, according to a press release Thursday from the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Construction will narrow traffic to one lane each night from Sunday through Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The construction will begin with pavement improvements along the right shoulders of I-10 within the project’s work zones.

The shoulder paving will require a temporary shift of the I-10 travel lanes while crews begin constructing new lanes along the freeway’s center median.

Westbound I-10 restrictions are expected to continue at the start of the week of July 25-29 before crews switch to overnight work along eastbound I-10.

Restriction schedules are subject to change due to factors such as inclement weather.

In addition to the third lane, the construction will overhaul the interchanges at Miller and Watson.

Drivers should allow extra travel time, and officials say the construction is scheduled for completion in summer of 2023.
