Northbound Seventh Avenue restricted at I-17 in Phoenix

Drivers can consider alternate routes, including Seventh Street
October 10, 2017

PHOENIX – Northbound Seventh Avenue is narrowed to one lane at the Interstate 17 interchange in Phoenix, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Drivers should consider using other northbound routes in the area approaching downtown Phoenix, including Central Avenue and Seventh Street.

The northbound Seventh Avenue left turning lanes to the northbound I-17 on-ramp are closed. The southbound I-17 off-ramp also is restricted with one of two left turn lanes to northbound Seventh Avenue closed.

The restrictions are in place while ADOT prepares for future bridge repairs at the interchange. At least one of the I-17 bridge girders over Seventh Avenue was damaged when the bridge was struck Monday morning by an over-height vehicle.

The I-17 bridge was inspected by bridge engineers and it is safe for travel while repairs are scheduled.
