PHOENIX — The continued closure of a portion of U.S. 60 in Tempe due to a water main break, as well as a closure of Interstate 10 in the West Valley, are among the restrictions on metro Phoenix freeways this weekend.
The U.S. 60 Superstition Freeway will remain closed between I-10 and McClintock Drive in both directions throughout the weekend, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
A segment of the freeway is expected to reopen next week after being closed since Saturday when a 50-year-old pipe broke and flooded the roadway with 8 million gallons of water, ADOT and the city of Tempe said Thursday.
The southbound State Route 143 on-ramp at University Drive and eastbound I-10 on-ramp at Broadway Road have also been temporarily closed.
🚧US 60 closures between L-101 and I-10 for city of Tempe repair work
🚧I-10 westbound closed between 75th Ave. and L-101
