Long Term Ramp Closure on I-95 in Jacksonville

The Florida Department of Transportation reports that the I-95/I-10 construction project in Jacksonville will have a long-term closure of the ramp from Interstate 95 southbound to Stockton Street for approximately one year starting November 13.

The closure may extend longer than a year due to weather, holidays and other unforeseen delays.

As part of the project’s operational improvements, crews will be constructing new dedicated Stockton and Irene Street ramps in an overall effort to reduce weaving and improve operations on Interstate 10 at Interstate 95.

During this extended closure, motorists on Interstate 95 southbound can take the Forest Street exit to Margaret Street which turns into Edison Avenue or take Interstate 10 westbound and use the McDuff Avenue exit to Edison Avenue – both detours will reconnect to Stockton Street.

Detour signs will be posted to help redirect motorists affected by the closure as follows:

Interstate 95 southbound to Forest Street detour:

  • Motorists traveling on Interstate 95 southbound can take the Forest Street exit and make a right onto Forest Street then a left onto Margaret Street which turns into Edison Avenue which will reconnect to Stockton Street.

Interstate 95 southbound to Interstate 10 westbound detour:

  • Motorists traveling on Interstate 95 southbound can also take Interstate 10 westbound to the McDuff Avenue exit. Once at the exit, make a right on McDuff Avenue, then make another right on Edison Avenue which will reconnect with Stockton Street.

The project began in May with completion anticipated in summer 2020, depending on weather, holidays and unforeseen circumstances.

I-10 Overnight Restrictions in Arizona, Allow Extra Travel Time, Consider Alternate Routes

The ongoing Interstate 10 pavement-improvement project between State Route 587 (Casa Blanca Road) and the Gila River bridge south of Chandler will require overnight lane restrictions during the week of Nov. 5-10 (Sunday through Thursday nights), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Drivers should allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes if possible while the following restrictions are in place:

  • East- and westbound Interstate 10 narrowed to one lane in each direction in areas between SR 587 and the Gila River bridge from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights (Nov. 5-10) for the I-10 resurfacing project. Please allow extra travel time and plan on using an alternate route.
  • Alternate routes are available depending on direction of travel and destination. Riggs Road will serve as one local alternate route. State routes 87, 187 and/or 387 also can serve as possible alternate routes adjacent to I-10. Please allow extra travel time. I-10 drivers traveling beyond Phoenix area should consider avoiding the I-10 restrictions by using I-8 and SR 85 as alternate routes.

Project schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather or other factors.

I-10 and I-5 Connectors in L.A. to Close for ‘Swarm’ Operation

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to close the Westbound I-10 (San Bernardino Freeway) connector to Southbound I-5, and the Southbound I-5 connector to Eastbound I-10 (San Bernardino Freeway) from 4 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 1, near downtown Los Angeles.

The eight-hour closure will enable Caltrans to conduct a “swarm” maintenance operation involving a wide variety of maintenance tasks. Multiple Caltrans crews assisted by dozens of community service workers will carry out the diverse maintenance duties simultaneously.

For safety, Caltrans will close the following connectors and ramps during the swarm operation:

Connectors:

  • Southbound I-5 connector to Eastbound I-10 (San Bernardino Freeway)
  • Westbound I-10 (San Bernardino Freeway) connector to Southbound I-5

Ramps:

  • Westbound I-10 State Street off ramp
  • Mission Road on ramp to Southbound I-5
  • Mission Road on ramp to Eastbound I-10
  • Cesar E. Chavez Avenue on ramp to Southbound I-5

Mainline freeway lanes will remain open during the swarm operation.

Caltrans anticipates 100 or more workers will repair pot holes, sweep the roadway, remove litter and graffiti, replace signs, trim trees, clear weeds, repair guardrail and irrigation, re-stripe the
roadway, re-lamp overhead lights, install new ramp meters, inspect and clean drains and culverts, and complete other maintenance needs.

Caltrans reminds drivers to “Be Work Zone Alert” and “Slow for the Cone Zone.”

Eastbound I-10 to Close West of Downtown Phoenix This Weekend, Expect Delays

Motorists traveling from the West Valley toward downtown Phoenix this weekend should allow extra travel time or plan ahead to avoid a closure of eastbound Interstate 10 (Papago Freeway) at 59th Avenue due to construction of the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Eastbound I-10 at 59th Avenue will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29, to 11 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 1.

The closure will be lifted several hours prior to the Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers football game ending at the University of Phoenix Stadium as heavy traffic is anticipated on eastbound I-10 following the game.

The closure will ensure a large crane can safely remove an 80-foot-long steel falsework beam above I-10 that temporarily supported this future flyover bridge.

During the closure, eastbound I-10 traffic will be able to exit the freeway at the 59th Avenue off-ramp and re-enter at the 59th Avenue on-ramp, but delays are anticipated.

The eastbound I-10 on-ramps at 75th and 67th avenues will be closed as well to help reduce traffic backups. In addition, northbound 59th Avenue will be closed from Roosevelt Street to I-10.

To avoid delays on eastbound I-10, motorists should consider alternate routes, including the Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) west of Interstate 17, or exiting I-10 sooner and taking local streets to re-enter past the closure point.

The steel beams are no longer needed to support the concrete structure, also known as a straddle bent, because the concrete has been cured and reinforced with steel cables. This bridge structure will serve as the future northbound Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway connection to westbound I-10.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.

Westbound I-10 to Close West of Downtown Phoenix This Weekend

Motorists traveling to the West Valley this weekend should allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes with a 16-hour closure of westbound Interstate 10 (Papago Freeway) planned at 59th Avenue for construction of the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Westbound I-10 will be closed at 59th Avenue from 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4, to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5. The closure will allow construction crews to pour a concrete structure, known as a straddle bent, over I-10 for the future westbound I-10 ramp connection to the South Mountain Freeway.

During the closure, westbound I-10 traffic will be able to exit at the 59th Avenue off-ramp and re-enter at the 59th Avenue on-ramp, but delays are likely through that point.

The westbound I-10 on-ramps at 43rd and 51st avenues will be closed as well to help reduce traffic backups.

To avoid delays on westbound I-10, motorists should consider alternate routes, including the Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) west of Interstate 17.

The straddle bent, which is one of seven on the project, is a large horizontal concrete pier cap supported by vertical columns. Those columns, spaced far enough apart to allow for the I-10 traffic beneath the straddle bent, are used on flyover bridge structures throughout the Valley.

The 22-mile South Mountain Freeway, expected to open by late 2019, will provide a long-planned direct link between the East Valley and West Valley and a much-needed alternative to I-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.

Overnight Closures, Traffic Restrictions for I-10 Construction in Phoenix

The Arizona Department of Transportation reports that late-night motorists traveling on westbound Interstate 10 (Papago Freeway) at 59th Avenue should prepare for overnight closures early next week and lane restrictions the remainder of the month as crews work on the flyover bridge structures that will eventually connect to the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway.

Motorists using westbound I-10 toward the West Valley are encouraged to adjust their travel schedules to avoid the closures and lane restrictions, or allow extra travel time due to heavy traffic, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The following I-10 overnight closures and traffic restrictions at 59th Avenue are scheduled during July:

  • Westbound I-10 closed at 59th Avenue from 9 p.m. Monday (July 10) to 5 a.m. Tuesday (July 11), from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday (July 12) and from 9 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday (July 13).
  • Westbound I-10 narrowed to one lane with brief intermittent closures at 59th Avenue from 9 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday (July 14) and from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Saturday (July 15).
  • Westbound I-10 narrowed to one lane overnight with brief intermittent closures at 59th Avenue from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights (July 16-20) – ending at 5 a.m. Friday.
  • Westbound I-10 narrowed to one lane overnight with brief intermittent closures at 59th Avenue from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights (July 23-27) – ending at 5 a.m. Friday.

During freeway closures, westbound I-10 traffic will detour along the off- and on-ramps at 59th Avenue.

The scheduled restrictions are subject to change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen factors. The project team will update the schedule of planned restrictions if necessary.

The 22-mile South Mountain Freeway, expected to open by late 2019, will provide a long-planned direct link between the East Valley and West Valley and a much-needed alternative to I-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.

I-10 Detour for Bridge Construction in Beaumont

The Texas Department of Transportation reports that, as part of the current I-10 widening project from SH 73 to Hamshire Road in Chambers and Jefferson counties, the existing Brush Island Bridge, which crosses over I-10, will be replaced with a new overpass.

Weather permitting, demolition of the Brush Island Bridge structure will require nightly closures of I-10 the week of June 19, from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.

During the closures, I-10 mainlane traffic between SH 73 and FM 365 will be detoured onto FM 365, SH 124, and SH 73. Additional signage and police enforcement will be placed along the detour route to accommodate the traveling public and promote safety.

Please note: The I-10 frontage roads are not continuous in this area; thus, they are not a viable detour. The frontage roads will, however, remain open for local traffic.

The demolition requiring the closures is estimated to take four nights.

  • Tuesday night, June 20
    I-10 eastbound traffic detoured
  • Wednesday night, June 21
    I-10 eastbound traffic detoured
  • Thursday night, June 22
    I-10 westbound traffic detoured
