The Arizona Department of Transportation is advising motorists to plan ahead and be prepared for detours this weekend while Broadway Road in Tempe is closed in both directions between 48th and 52nd streets from 10 p.m. Friday, July 22, to 4 a.m. Monday, July 25. At the same time, the eastbound Interstate 10 connector ramp between 48th Street and Broadway Road and the westbound I-10 off-ramp at Broadway Road will be closed. The eastbound I-10 on-ramp at Broadway Road will remain open. Drivers will not be able to access Broadway Road from 52nd Street and should use University Drive instead.
This weekend’s work to realign the intersection of Broadway Road and 52nd Street is occurring in conjunction with the I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project. The intersection is being shifted to the south so workers can make improvements to the north. Following this weekend’s work, drivers will use a temporary traffic signal at this intersection.
