PHOENIX — The final repairs on the U.S. 60 water line will shut down a portion of the freeway for several weeks starting next month.

From Oct. 2-28, the eastbound U.S. 60 ramp to southbound Loop 101 and the eastbound U.S. 60 off-ramp to McClintock will be closed, the city of Tempe said in a press release.

A single eastbound lane will be closed on U.S. 60 from McClintock Drive to Loop 101 on Oct. 2 to allow crews to set up barricades for the worksite, opening Oct. 3 prior to rush hour.

There may be intermittent restrictions during final pipe testing anticipated to run from Oct. 19-28.

The repairs come after a 24-inch water transmission line broke in May, causing flooding and the closure of the highway for several weeks.
