PHOENIX — It will be a light weekend of restrictions on metro Phoenix freeways, with the only full closure impacting State Route 143.

Southbound SR 143 will be closed for a traffic shift from the Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway to Interstate 10, near Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, from 10 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday. The westbound Loop 202 exit to the airport also will be closed for the work.

While that’s the only full freeway closure, there will be other restrictions that could impede traffic over the weekend.

Westbound I-10 will be narrowed to two lanes near U.S. 60 from 10 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday for work on the Broadway Curve Project. The westbound I-10 on-ramp to Baseline Road will be closed at that time.

In north Phoenix, northbound I-17 will be narrowed to two lanes between Dunlap and Peoria avenues from 9 p.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday for a Valley Metro light rail bridge project. The northbound I-17 on-ramp at Dunlap Avenue will be closed at that time.

Finally, Colter Street, which provides access to Camelback Road, will be closed in both directions at State Route 51 from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for bridge maintenance.
