I-10 Ramp Closure Map, 061318

The eastbound I-10 off-ramp at 51st Avenue will close permanently at 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 13.

Next week, the eastbound I-10 on-ramp at 59th Avenue will close permanently at 8 p.m. Monday, June 18.

With the removal of these ramps, a new I-10 access road between 59th and 51st avenues will provide access to 59th Avenue when it’s completed in July.

This is one of several I-10 ramps that have been removed permanently or reconstructed to tie into a wider I-10 that will include connecting ramps to and from the South Mountain Freeway when it opens late 2019. The westbound I-10 on-ramp at 43rd Avenue remains closed through July due to reconstruction.

Long-term and permanent closures of existing on-and-off ramps are necessary between 51st and 67th avenues until all of the new access roads are completed by fall 2018. Motorists will be able to access 59th Avenue from these new roadways.

Work schedules and restrictions are subject to change due to inclement weather or other factors. To stay up to date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at or call 511.
