PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation advises motorists to allow extra travel time for lane and ramp closures and restrictions on west- and eastbound Interstate 10 this weekend. 

Closures are scheduled in conjunction with the I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project.

  • Westbound I-10 will be closed between U.S. 60 and SR 143 from 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, to 4 a.m. Monday, Oct. 24, for bridge work. The following ramps will also be closed:

    • The westbound I-10 on-ramps at Elliot, Baseline, and Broadway roads.
    • The westbound U.S. 60 on-ramps at McClintock Drive, Rural Road, and Mill Avenue.  (Please note: Closures of the westbound U.S. 60 on-ramps are needed to avoid introducing more traffic into the I-10 closure.

Motorists traveling westbound on I-10 and U.S. 60 to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport should use the Sky Harbor Boulevard entrance from Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway).

  • Eastbound I-10 will be closed between SR 143 and U.S. 60 from 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, to 10 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, for SRP utility relocation work. At the same time, the following ramps will be closed:
