ADOT weekend freeway travel advisory for April 7-10

Drivers should consider alternate routes while a stretch of southbound Interstate 17 approaching Camelback Road is closed this weekend for rubberized asphalt resurfacing. Alternate routes include southbound State Route 51. The Arizona Department of Transportation says sections of I-10 in the downtown area also will be closed during mostly overnight hours for scheduled maintenance of the Deck Park Tunnel. Here is ADOT’s list of planned freeway restrictions this weekend:

  • Southbound Interstate 17 closed between Camelback and Thomas roads from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (April 10) for rubberized asphalt resurfacing. Southbound I-17 on-ramp at Bethany Home Road closed. Consider alternate routes, including Loop 101 and southbound State Route 51. Expect heavy delays on southbound I-17 frontage road. Note: A closure of eastbound I-10 (see next item) also is scheduled in the downtown Phoenix area from Friday night to Saturday morning. Please plan your travel accordingly.
  • Eastbound Interstate 10 closed between I-17 “Stack” interchange and State Route 51 near downtown Phoenix from 9 p.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday (April 8) for tunnel cleaning and maintenance. Both I-17 ramps to eastbound I-10 closed. Consider alternate routes. Eastbound I-17 traffic will detour to southbound I-17 and can reconnect with I-10 near Sky Harbor Airport. Allow extra travel time.

Westbound Loop 202 ramps to westbound I-10 will be open but traffic must exit I-10 at Seventh Street and use alternate routes, including McDowell Road. Southbound I-17 ramp to westbound I-10 near the airport also closed. Westbound I-10 traffic will detour to northbound I-17 near airport and can reconnect with I-10 north of Adams Street.
