In north Phoenix, the eastbound Loop 101 Pima Freeway will be closed between Seventh Avenue and Cave Creek Road from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for pavement joint sealing as part of a widening project.

Both I-17 ramps to eastbound Loop 101 in addition to the eastbound Loop 101 on-ramps at 27th and 19th avenues are also set to be closed.

Near Sky Harbor Airport, westbound I-10 will be narrowed to two lanes with the right lanes closed between Broadway Road and 24th Street from 3 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday for the Broadway Curve Improvement Project.

Drivers should expect westbound I-10 on- and off-ramp closures in this area, along with a closure of the southbound State Route 143 ramp to westbound I-10.

Northbound SR 143 will also be narrowed to one lane between Broadway Road and University Drive.

The eastern portion of the highway will then be narrowed to three lanes with the right lanes closed between 24th Street and Broadway Road from 3 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

As with the other restriction, drivers should expect eastbound I-10 on- and off-ramp closures in the area.
