No Major Weekend Freeway Closures In Phoenix Area This Weekend

No major closures for ongoing improvement projects are scheduled along Phoenix-area freeways this weekend (Dec. 8-11), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

To limit impacts on traffic, shopping and the delivery of products during the holiday travel season, ADOT and its contractors schedule work to avoid full freeway closures through New Year’s weekend.

With work still planned near freeways, including during overnight hours, drivers should remain alert, use caution and be prepared to slow down when approaching and traveling through any existing work zones.

Work zones remain in place for the I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project in the Phoenix area. The westbound US 60 HOV lane ramp to westbound I-10 will be closed overnight from 9 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday (Dec. 9) for freeway lighting work. Drivers can instead use the primary ramp connecting the two freeways.

Drivers also should use caution and obey reduced speed limits within the I-17 widening project currently underway between Anthem and Sunset Point.
