PHOENIX – Work on the Interstate 10 Broadway Curve Project will force the shutdown of part of the freeway in the East Valley this weekend, transportation officials said Monday.

Westbound I-10 will be closed in both directions between Loop 202 Santan/South Mountain freeways and U.S. 60 starting Friday at 10 p.m., the Arizona Department of Transportation said in a press release.

The section will reopen at noon Sunday.

In the other direction, eastbound I-10 will be blocked off between U.S. 60 and Loop 202 beginning Saturday at 8 p.m. until Monday at 4 a.m.

Drivers heading west on I-10 will be unable to use the following ramps:

• Between Chandler Boulevard and Elliot Road.
• Wild Horse Pass Boulevard.
• All ramps from westbound Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) to westbound I-10.
• The eastbound Loop 202 (South Mountain Freeway) ramp to westbound I-10.
• The HOV ramp from westbound Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) to westbound I-10.

Drivers heading east on I-10 will be faced with closures on these ramps:

• Between Broadway and Ray roads.
• The westbound U. S. 60 ramp to eastbound I-10.
• The eastbound I-10 HOV ramp to eastbound U.S 60.

Crews will be pulling down the north face of the Guadalupe Road bridge to set up for road widening while Salt River Project workers will be engaged with utility relocation.

The bridge is one of several that will be replaced or widened as part of the project, which will cover 11 miles between the Interstate 17 “Split” and Loop 202 Santan and South Mountain freeways.

More than 300,000 vehicles travel through the Broadway Curve on an average work day and the project will add lanes and make other improvements, ADOT said.

The entire project is being funded by a half-cent sales tax in the county approved by voters in 2004.
