PHOENIX — Interstate 17 in Phoenix reopened Monday night in both directions after storm-related closures, state transportation officials said.
Northbound I-17 closed at Dunlap Avenue and southbound I-17 closed at Peoria Avenue as a precaution due to the weather affecting Valley Metro’s light-rail project at the freeway, the Arizona Department of Transportation said in a press release just before 8 p.m.
The northbound lanes opened back up before 10 p.m. and the southbound lanes shortly thereafter.
UPDATE: I-17 SB has reopened at Peoria Avenue.#Aztraffic https://t.co/rfhplLXN2Q
