I-10 Westbound Closures - June and July 2017

    Westbound Interstate 10 will be closed at 59th Avenue over two weekends to allow construction crews to set falsework and a steel beam to support the future concrete structure (known as a straddle bent) for the westbound I-10 ramp to the new southbound Loop 202 (South Mountain Freeway).
    Detour: Westbound I-10 traffic will use the 59th Avenue off- and on-ramps to detour around the closure.
    What to Expect:
    • Westbound I-10 closed at 59th Avenue
    • Westbound I-10 traffic will use 59th
      Avenue off-and-on-ramps to detour
      around the closure
    • 51st Avenue and 43rd Avenue on-ramps will be closed 
    • Expect heavy traffic and delays
    • Consider using alternate local routes
