Closure for investigation Sunday on I-10 near Casa Grande

Motorists using Interstate 10 near Casa Grande between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. Sunday should plan for a closure and detour followed by lane restrictions while the Arizona Department of Public Safety investigates a crash that occurred this week, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.The area involved is between State Route 387 (milepost 185) and McCartney Road (milepost 190).

A closure of I-10 in both directions is expected to occur around 5 a.m. The length of the closure will depend on how long it takes state troopers to take measurements in the crash scene.

During the closure, eastbound traffic can take SR 387 south to McCartney Road or SR 287 and head east back to I-10. Westbound traffic can take SR 287 or McCartney Road west and then SR 387 north back to I-10.

After measurements are complete, one lane will reopen in each direction until the DPS investigation is complete.
