I-10 Traffic | I-10 Construction | Phoenix, Arizona | I-10 Exit Guide

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is advising motorists to plan ahead and expect delays as eastbound I-10 between SR 51 and US 60 will be closed from 10:00 p.m. Friday, February 16, through 4:00 a.m. Monday, February 19, for a traffic shift. At the same time, the following will be closed.

  • The eastbound I-10 on-ramps at Third, Seventh, and Jefferson streets, Buckeye Road, 24th, 32nd and 40th streets and Broadway Road
  • The loop ramp from southbound SR 143 to eastbound I-10
  • The southbound I-17 on-ramps at Seventh Avenue and Seventh Street
  • The ramp from southbound I-17 to eastbound I-10
  • The westbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) ramp to eastbound I-10.
  • The southbound SR 51 on ramp at McDowell Road
  • The ramps from southbound SR 51 to eastbound I-10 
  • The high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) ramp from eastbound I-10 to eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) 

Detour: Use eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) to southbound Loop 101 (Price Freeway) to westbound US 60 or westbound Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) to access eastbound I-10 beyond the closure. Drivers traveling on southbound I-17 can use westbound I-10 to eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway). 

West Valley drivers heading to the Southeast Valley can bypass the closure by using Loop 202 (South Mountain Freeway). From I-10 and 59th Avenue, travel south and east to connect with eastbound I-10 south of Chandler Blvd. 

New lane configuration: When eastbound I-10 reopens, drivers can expect a new lane configuration. The existing split between 48th Street and Broadway Road will shift with a roadway barrier and work zone in between. There will be three lanes to the left of the work zone and two lanes to the right of the work zone. Drivers wishing to exit onto US 60 using the general purpose lanes are encouraged to move into the right two lanes before 48th Street. HOV lane access to eastbound US 60 will be unchanged. 

Please note: Schedules can quickly change because of weather and other unforeseen situations.
