PHOENIX — Phoenix-area drivers won’t have to worry about closures on freeways for a third straight weekend.

The Arizona Department of Transportation said there won’t be any scheduled restrictions Friday through Sunday on the Valley’s seven major freeways.

Motorists in the West Valley and East Valley could contend with some disruptions for construction work, but they will be minor.

Drivers can get real-time freeway conditions online or by calling 511.
