Valley travelers likely to face weekend roadblocks

US 60 near McClintock [ADOT]

Do you have plans in the Valley this weekend? Maricopans headed north to Phoenix and the East Valley can expect road closures on several major routes. 

Eastbound U.S. 60 (Superstition Freeway) will be closed between I-10 and Loop 101 (Price Freeway) from 9 p.m. today to 5 a.m. Monday for pavement improvements.    

The I-10 ramp to eastbound U.S. 60 will be closed.    

As a detour, drivers can use eastbound Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) to northbound Loop 101. Drivers can also use eastbound Baseline or Broadway roads. 

Northbound I-17 will be closed between Union Hills Drive and Pinnacle Peak Road from 9 p.m. today to 5 a.m. Monday for a pavement improvement project.   

Northbound I-17 on-ramps at Thunderbird, Greenway and Bell Roads closed.  

As a detour, northbound I-17 drivers can use 19th Avenue to circumvent the closure. Drivers travelling on Loop 101 should consider exiting ahead of I-17 and using the local route to avoid closures. 

Westbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) will be closed between Loop 101 (Price Freeway) and Van Buren/52nd Streets in Phoenix from 9 p.m. today to 5 a.m. Monday for a pavement improvement project.   

Both Loop 101 ramps to westbound Loop 202, as well as the northbound Loop 101 ramp to eastbound Loop 202, will be closed. 

As a detour, drivers can use southbound Loop 101 to westbound US 60 and westbound I-10 to travel beyond the closure. East Valley drivers who normally would use westbound Loop 202 to go to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport should allow extra time and consider local routes, including westbound McDowell Road to southbound 44th Street. 

The following ramps will also be closed from 10 p.m. tonight to 4 a.m. Monday: 

  • Westbound I-10 ramp to northbound SR 143 (Hohokam Expressway). 
  • Southbound SR 143 ramp to westbound I-10. Southbound SR 143 also narrowed to one lane at I-10. 
  • Westbound I-10 on-ramp at Broadway Road and the southbound SR 143 on-ramp at University Drive. 
  •  Northbound 40th Street closed between Broadway Road and Raymond Street.
