I-10 Closures Required to Move Construction Equipment in Phoenix

With a 100-ton crane standing adjacent to Interstate 10 near 59th Avenue and an oversized drill rig parked nearby in the median, work is getting underway to construct piers supporting the flyover ramps for the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway interchange at I-10 in the West Valley.SMF Interchange-Crane

A series of closures of westbound I-10 between 51st and 67th avenues are needed during the next few weeks to move this equipment to begin work on structures that will carry traffic over I-10 when the South Mountain Freeway opens by late 2019.

The first closure will last for approximately three hours between 11 p.m. Tuesday, April 18, and 5 a.m. Wednesday, April 19, when westbound traffic will exit and re-enter I-10 via ramps at 59th Avenue. Drivers should allow extra travel time.

There will be limited closures for the next few weeks as the equipment is moved from one location to another to drill deep foundations for the flyover ramp piers.

Over the next two years, crews from Connect 202 Partners, developer of the South Mountain Freeway project, will drill 43 shafts for the piers, using an auger to carve out 10-foot-diameter holes up to 100 feet deep. A crane will plant rebar cages in the holes, which will be filled with concrete.

In addition to the traffic interchange, improvements at the western end of the South Mountain Freeway include widening I-10 from 43rd to 75th avenues with merge lanes in each direction and adding two-mile-long access roads to improve traffic flow between 51st and 67th avenues. The new access roads will carry two lanes of traffic in each direction parallel to I-10.

The South Mountain Freeway will provide a long-planned direct link between the East Valley and West Valley and a much-needed alternative to Interstate 10 through downtown Phoenix. Approved by Maricopa County voters in 1985 and again in 2004 as part of a comprehensive regional transportation plan, the South Mountain Freeway will complete the Loop 202 and Loop 101 freeway system in the Valley.

Arizona I-10 Construction Work Begins, Watch For Detours, Lane Restrictions

Drivers on Arizona I-10 near Ina Road will need to be alert for lane restrictions and a few changes now that a 25-month Arizona Department of Transportation project to rebuild the Ina Road traffic interchange has begun.

Westbound I-10 is restricted to one lane between Sunset and Cortaro roads as crews prepare to shift traffic to the westbound frontage road. That change will remain in place for about 12 months.

Eastbound I-10 is restricted to a single lane and eastbound traffic will be moved to the westbound I-10 lanes. That change also will remain in effect for about 12 months.

Although the Ina Road interchange will remain closed until early 2019, access to businesses on both sides of the freeway is open.

Drivers heading to Orange Grove Road from westbound I-10 should exit at Sunset Road and follow the frontage road to Orange Grove. That change will be in place throughout the project, which is scheduled to end in early 2019. All other ramps at Orange Grove remain open.

I-10 / Ina Road Construction Continues in Arizona

From now through mid-2017, the Arizona Department of Transportation will be constructing a bridge over I-10 and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks at Ina Road. When completed, this project will ease the flow of traffic at this intersection and improve the safety at this location for all users of Marana’s roads and I-10.

The Interstate 10/Ina Road Traffic Interchange project in Marana just north of Tucson continues its first phase of construction and is scheduled to last through early 2017. Work includes constructing a detour for traffic to use when the Ina Road traffic interchange closes, building temporary construction easements and major utility work. During this phase, Ina Road remains open. Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction equipment and personnel while the following I-10 closures and restrictions are in place:

  • The left lane on eastbound I-10, from Ina to Orange Grove roads will be closed nightly from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, through Friday, Sept. 30 and again Sunday, Oct. 2, to Wednesday, Oct. 5.
  • The westbound I-10 frontage road is closed between Ina and Cortaro roads through the end of the year and also closed south of Ina Road through September.
  • The eastbound I-10 frontage road south of Ina Road and north of Starcommerce Way is reduced to one lane daily through fall 2016.

Access to all businesses will be maintained. Traffic control signs will guide drivers through the work zone.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned roadway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur due to weather or equipment issues.

Drivers are reminded to share the road, be cautious, and slow down while traveling through the work zone.

Expect Delays as Major I-10 Interchange Project in Arizona Begins Monday, July 11

An Arizona Department of Transportation project to make the interchange of Interstate 10 and Ina Road in Marana safer and easier to navigate kicks off next week, although significant roadway restrictions are still six months or more away.

Beginning Monday, July 11, drivers on Ina Road and I-10 should expect occasional delays as crews improve frontage roads and make other changes to prepare for work that includes building a bridge and interchange carrying Ina over the Union Pacific railroad tracks as well as widening I-10 and Ina, northwest of Tucson.

Among this early work:

  • Overnight utility work will narrow eastbound I-10 to one lane from Cortaro Road to Ina Road between 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 13, and 5 a.m. Thursday, July 14. The eastbound I-10 off-ramp at Ina will be closed during this time.
  • Westbound I-10 will be reduced to one lane between Orange Grove Road and Ina Road from 8 p.m. Thursday, July 14, to 5 a.m. Friday, July 15, with the westbound I-10 off-ramp at Ina closed during this time.
  • Ina Road will be narrowed to one lane in each direction overnight between the railroad tracks and Camino de la Cruz, a quarter mile to the east, on Wednesday and Thursday nights, July 13 and 14, as well as the following week (July 17-22) so crews can remove and repave the center median islands.

Starting in early 2017, the $120 million project will require a roughly two-year closure of Ina Road as well as restrictions on I-10 for construction of the overpass and interchange.

“This is a very important project for this area,” said Rod Lane, ADOT district engineer. “Not only will these improvements allow traffic to move more quickly through this area, but it also will be safer for drivers who no longer will have to cross the train tracks.”

Drivers can expect lane closures to continue on the eastbound frontage road and Starcommerce Way from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily for utility work. Crews also will build a ramp connecting Ina Road with the eastbound frontage road as well as four crossover ramps, two north of Canyon del Oro Wash and two more north of Massingale Road.

By the end of July, the westbound frontage road will close for the rest of 2016 while crews widen and improve the frontage road to handle westbound I-10 traffic when freeway construction begins in early 2017. Ina Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction during much of this work.

Drivers may want to consider alternate routes to save time, including Cortaro Road to the north of Ina and Orange Grove Road to the south.

I-10 East of Tucson to Close Overnight March 22

The Arizona Department of Transportation reports that a bridge replacement project on westbound Interstate 10 between Tucson and Benson will require a 67-mile detour overnight from 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, to 5 a.m. Wednesday, March 23.

Westbound I-10 motorists, traveling toward Tucson, should expect up to two additional hours of travel time and consider avoiding the stretch if possible.

Eastbound I-10 will remain open.

It’s the first of two planned closures this spring to allow crews to replace the bridge at Davidson Canyon, between State Route 83 east of Tucson (Exit 281) and State Route 90 west of Benson (Exit 302).

The full westbound closures are needed to allow crews to safely set girders and pour new bridge decks. The concrete girders, which are 119 feet long and weigh 45,000 pounds each, are lifted off truck beds and put in place by a crane.

Detour signs will guide westbound I-10 motorists south on SR 90 (Exit 302), west on SR 82 to Sonoita and north on SR 83 to reconnect with I-10 at Exit 281.

The $15.1 million improvement project includes replacing the bridge at Davidson Canyon, which was built in 1961 near milepost 285, and repaving three segments of I-10, totaling 17 miles between Tucson and Benson.

ADOT will provide advance notice of the next closure, which will be overnight during April and will not affect weekend or holiday travel.

Paving work, which is on a winter shutdown, is expected to resume in early April.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
